About this deal

Those coming from compact cameras or phones may be a little disappointed with the Live View performance of this camera. If you want to shoot using the LCD screen, rather than the viewfinder, you'll probably find the autofocus performance sluggish and frustrating, so it's not something we'd recommend doing often. The biggest problem with the 1200D is that it's just not that exciting. Having waited for three years for an upgrade to the 1100D, it would have been nice to see some more audacious specs, such as built-in Wi-Fi, or perhaps a higher resolution sensor. Verdict

While many don't like electronic viewfinders, the downside of optical viewfinders like the one on the 1200D is that they don't offer a 100% field of view, which can lead to problems with composition. We liked As a DSLR, the 1200D uses Canon's EF/EF-S lens mount, which is compatible with hundreds of different lenses. The size of the sensor (APS-C) makes for a 1.6x crop factor. As standard, the 1200D comes with an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens, which, in 35mm terms offers an equivalent of 28.8 – 88mm. This makes for a versatile first optic. The camera can shoot at up to 3fps, which doesn't compare particularly well with the Nikon D3300's 5fps capability.The new Canon EOS 1200D replaces the 1100D, which is now three years old, and sits just below the ultra-small 100D as the first camera in the line-up. The tutorials and challenges are more interesting though, but that's something which could be used by any camera user, not just those who are working with the 1200D, so it's not particular to this model.

Featuring an 18 million-pixel sensor, the camera has a Digic 4 image processor, which although not the most recent Canon imaging engine, has proven itself to be a decent performer in previous Canon models. It's a shame that Canon isn't offering more interesting specs for its beginner option. This is more of a gentle upgrade than a full-blown revolution of the 1100D. It would be nice to see built-in Wi-Fi, which is starting to become a standard specification for even the cheapest of compact cameras. With the Used Canon 1200D you are able to cange your viewpoint and capture different subjects as your photography progresses, with the extensive 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. Are you looking to sell a Canon 1200D or upgrade?Full HD video recording is included, which means that the whole Canon DSLR line-up now has the capacity to record high resolution movies. You can also take full manual control of video recording, which is nice to see on an entry level model. The camera's native sensitivity run starts at ISO 100, rising up to ISO 6400, but this is expandable up to 12800. As the camera doesn't use the most recent image processor, it will be interesting to see how well it copes with noise in high sensitivity and low light situations.
