Product Description

Embrace every opportunity

Capture the emotion of the moment, with a DSLR camera that's easy to use and delivers results you'll love.

Photos you'll be proud of

Shoot photos and video with a quality and character all of their own. 18-megapixel images from the EOS 1200D are packed with detail and are large enough to be printed at sizes up to A2+. Videos have a professional look and feel that looks great played back on your home HDTV.

Discover DSLR photography with EOS Companion app

Use the free EOS Companion app to explore the features and controls of your EOS 1200D and learn about how different lenses can deliver creative options and capture different subjects. Interactive tutorials and assignments will inspire you and help you develop your skills.

Capture memories even as it gets dark

When light levels get low the EOS 1200D boosts its sensitivity to light so your pictures stay sharp and you can reduce the need to use flash. Shooting with ambient light is a great way of capturing the atmosphere of an occasion, and remaining discreet for those priceless moments and natural expressions.

Easy to use for any subject

When you compose a photograph using the EOS 1200D the camera analyses the scene too, looking for brightness, colour and the presence of movement and faces. This information is used to set the most appropriate camera settings for the scene, whether it's a detail-packed landscape or fast-moving action. A built-in Feature Guide, and supporting app, help you learn more about your camera whenever you want.

Ergonomic design you'll love to use

An optical viewfinder allows you to compose and anticipate your shot, so you'll always be ready to capture the emotion behind the moment. It has friendly controls that are instinctive to use, and a large 7.5cm (3") LCD screen for image review.

Express your creative side

Emphasise the main subject in a photo by isolating it against a soft, blurred background - a look characteristic of DSLR photography. Use one of five Creative filters to add a personal touch to your photography, including Grainy Black and White, Toy Camera and Fish Eye effect.

Stay in focus

Keep subjects looking sharp by placing them underneath one of the EOS 1200D's nine focusing points. These are spread out across the viewfinder, letting you place your subject either in the middle of the frame or off-centre, for a more interesting composition.

See the world through different eyes

Change your viewpoint and capture different subjects as your photography progresses, with the extensive Canon EF and EF-S lens ranges. Get up close with a telephoto lens, or get even more of the scene in with an ultra wide-angle zoom.

Style Name: Body Only
I quite liked the EOS 1100D (but felt it was a bit dated despite being a bargain price) so was quite keen to try this to see what improvements Canon had made.
The answer is some, but probably not as many as I expected.
I'll list out the key areas where the EOS 1200D is improved over the 1100D

+ 18mp CMOS sensor (same as many other Canon's) up from the 12mp CMOS
+ Build does feel a bit better in the hand, the grip is now textured v the smooth one on the older model
+ The rear LCD is now 3" 460k dots v the 2.7" 230k EOS 1100D, quite a bit better, and sharper but not up to the 600d's high res
+ You now have full HD video 1920 x 1080 at 30/25fps v 1280 x 720 (mono no mic socket) sound levels can be adjusted, and movie length is now 29:59 secs rather than the 17 minutes on the older model
+ Raw can now be shot at 3fps v 2fps, the raw buffer is 6 frames
+ You have various creative filter "effects" you can apply to images, soft focus/toy camera etc etc

In other areas, the EOS 1200D is basically the same as the EOS1100D
Same Digic 4 processor
Same 9 point AF and CFL metering (with one cross type central AF sensor)
Spec is identical in other ways max shutter of 30 seconds to 1/4000 sec, 0.80x viewfinder the same too
**Note there is no AF for the video mode manual focus only** but you do have manual controls like exposure and white balance
SD card slot also sits in the main battery compartment as previous models (note tripod users), a minor niggle probably done for cost saving measures.

In the hand the AF via the viewfinder felt a touch more responsive v the 1100d, live view AF was still pretty slow and no obvious improvement seen here.

Style Name: EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm fairly new to DSLR photography and still trying to learn as much as I can, this seems like a great choice for an entry level camera.

The first thing you notice is how comfortable it feels in the hand and how light it is, at least as light as you can get for a DSLR. It has all the features you need to take great pictures and it also shoots full HD video too which is a bonus for me. On the rear of the camera is a 3 inch LCD which has a higher dot count over the previous model the 1100D, so it shows off your photos and videos much better.

As for the images themselves they're very crisp and clear and I was amazed at what this little camera can produce. I expected decent photos with it being a DSLR but the results were better than I expected. Most of the shots I've taken have been outdoors so the images are well lit and colourful, I need to test it out more indoors or perhaps in the evenings to see how it fares. I also took the liberty of shooting some video which is perfectly adequate for most people's needs. One thing I would say is that this lacks an input for an external mic, I use a Rode Videomic Pro when shooting video so it would have been nice to pair this with the 1200D. You also don't get auto focus when shooting video so that's something else to bear in mind.

The battery seems to last well when taking photos, I took the camera for a day out and shot quite a few photos and the battery indicator was still showing as full. As for video I can't comment on how long the battery would last, but it will more than likely eat it up a lot quicker. Other DSLR's I've used for video generally last 45 mins.

If you're new to DSLR photography and fancy picking up a camera to start you off then you can't go far wrong with the 1200D.

Style Name: EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II Lens Verified Purchase
I've got this camera now for three days, happy with it but the instruction manual says the battery should shoot 170-190 images while mine took only 92 images in the Live View - maybe because I'm saving to RAW format.

RAW format creates new version of .CR2 files - Windows 8.1 is unable to display thumbnails in the explorer so I use IrfanView (with plugins) to browse the pictures. Photoshop doesn't recognise CR2 files yet, you can use Adobe DNG converter but it breaks the pictures sometimes, so it's best to use Canon Digital Photo Professional software to play with RAW CR2 files.

It takes a while to focus in the Live View you can change the AF mode from FlexiZone to Quick mode which is a bit faster.

All in all it's a good SLR for this price (I've paid £339).

It's been a week now since I've got the camera and I've found 5 stuck/hot pixels on the sensor - on every picture that I take I can see red (sometimes white) dots which are always in the same places. I've noticed them when I was taking long exposure pictures and now when I know where they are I can see them every time.
I've read that nowadays most of digital cameras have a couple of hot/stuck pixels, it's easy to fix in photoshop but still it's annoying that a brand new camera is defective. I will be sending it back, asking for a replacement and hopefully the new one will be fine.

Style Name: EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 III Lens
With the slow death of traditional video cameras, many people, like myself, use DSLRs for video. But I don’t like to break the bank, so I usually stick to entry-level cameras.

I previously owned the Canon 1100D and Nikon D3100. They served me well, but both were showing their age in video mode. Neither had manual controls, and the Canon 1100D maxed out at 720p. So it came time to update.

I decided to go for the Nikon D3200 after reading glowing reviews and seeing it’s new low price…….. Boy, did I make a mistake. The video quality is abysmal at anything over 200 ISO. Anything black or in shadows is full of thick grain and a flickering red tint.

I thought there was something wrong, so I Googled the problem and it turns out that it was a common complaint with that model. Nikon never patched the camera to correct it. So I took the camera back to the store (A fine stills camera. But avoid it for video)

Then I spotted the new Canon 1200D. It was the same price as the Nikon, so I decided to do a straight swap….. The quality difference is MASSIVE. I can shoot video at 1600 ISO and it has less grain/noise than the Nikon did at 400! It also has full control over the aperture during live view (The Nikon did not).

As far as stills go, they are about on par. But if you are after great video quality at an entry-level price. Go for the Canon 1200D. You will not be disappointed.
