Announced alongside the SZ-31MR, the SZ-12 has the same body and lens range but contains a CCD sensor rather than CMOS. A bit bulkier than your pocket, the SZ-12 fits an impressive 24x zoom in a body that only costs $200. We do wish it were a little bit smaller with a shorter zoom range, but for the money you get 720p video, a 14 megapixel sensor, and a 3-inch LCD. It suffers from some slow performance issues and only mediocre image quality in low light.
