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
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. (takes a few seconds for live view contrast AF to lock) This is ok for static subjects like landscapes, for normal shooting the viewfinder is a better bet.
So you get a 6mp bump in sensor resolution, and a better video mode and nicer LCD.
If you're looking for a bargain the EOS 1100D is now £240 odd the lowest price I've ever seen on a DSLR, the 600D is also flying around for a fairly good price too. Do have a look at what your needs are, if you want that swivel LCD the 600d is unbeatable value at the moment.
I didn't expect a swivel LCD at this price point, nor did I imagine the 70d's excellent on sensor PDAF would make it down to this model (but I expect the 750d will have it) Canon have been fairly conservative with their update here, still it does have most of what a user would want at this price point. It's easy to use and a great camera for learning on. Like the 1100D HSS is supported with dedicated flashes (high speed sync for fill flash outside with a dedicated flash that supports this), wireless flash is not built into the on-board flash. You also have full control over the camera as well as aperture, shutter, manual modes and of course raw capture.
A DSLR offers new users more control, the ability to change lenses, as well as better image quality and more depth of field control (ie blur backgrounds for portraits etc), over a smaller sensor camera.
The IS II "lens" in this kit bundle does have stabilisation which is worth having in comparison to the non stabilised kit lens
The good news is that the improvements do bring a few lagging areas on the 1100D more up to date (LCD screen, higher res sensor and a full HD video) The Sigma 70-300mm is a fairly reasonable tele zoom lens which offers you a decent reach on the long end. Combined with the 18-55mm kit lens you can do quite a lot with these two lenses.
It's an excellent way to start your DSLR journey, and the price is only going to go down even more over time.
