    I tried USB-C and mini USB from various smartphones but none of them fit.

    After some searching it seems it is a Mini-B 12-Terminal. Does anyone know if this carries charge too, or if it is only for data transfer?

    It does carry charge on many cameras, e.g. Panasonic TZ series.

    That's not a USB connector. It's a proprietary connector and can be wired up in different ways for different manufacturers.
