From birthday celebrations to holiday adventures, you can trust the EOS 1200D to deliver outstanding results. Perfect for first-time DSLR owners the EOS 1200D combines Canon's world class imaging system with a range of intuitive, easy-to-use controls.
Together with Canon's EOS Companion app, capturing images that do your memories justice is easier and more enjoyable than ever before.
Shoot beautiful 18-megapixel photos that are packed with rich detail and natural colours, and capture the mood of any occasion. Crop, rotate and reframe images without compromising on quality, and create large prints up to A2 in size – perfect for framing at home. Full HD movies have a professional look and feel that looks great played back on your home HDTV.
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.
Shooting with a DSLR doesn’t have to be complicated. In addition to the EOS 1200D’s built-in Feature Guide, which explains the camera’s functions using plain and simple language, is EOS Companion – a smartphone app that explains the basics of photography, and how to get started with your new EOS camera.
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.
