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.

Top customer reviews
Granted I am not a pro and some issues may be due to user error, I don't think that should be enough to blame all the issues I am having with this camera. It will work with some coaxing when used on manual mode but as I mostly like to stop quickly while hiking it has resulted in annoyed hiking partners while I fiddle about with it and many ruined photos once I get a chance to review on a better screen.
I have included some terrible and some not so terrible shots taken with the stock 15-30 lens.
The camera seems to do better with close subjects versus landscapes on a whole
the light sensor (??) cannot detect properly causing the viewfinder to be dimmed to the point I can barely see through it sometimes. This also makes the camera want to deploy the flash all the time which wouldn't be a big issue but the releasing mechanism is sticky causing it to error frequently.
the images are almost always overexposed on auto settings especially on landscape mode
images are both over and under exposed at the same time??
many images appear great on viewfinder but when reviewed later are out of focus. The camera seems to have a great deal of trouble focusing most of the time when using autofocus
Going back I also would have gotten a camera where the manual settings could be changed easier, and on a separate display than the review screen, it would make night photography much easier.
