Canon PowerShot A1200 review

 

Editors' note: Several of the design, features, and shooting options are identical between the Canon PowerShot A1200 and the

The Canon PowerShot A1200 IS is inexpensive while still offering very good features and photo and video quality.

The camera's shooting performance is slow.

Canon PowerShot A1200 Review

 

So you have been contemplating a digital camera, but are afraid that all the cameras in the market are complicated to use.

The Canon PowerShot A1200 sells in India for a street price of Rs. 5,800. This is a good option to go for, if you are just getting into photography or just want to use this camera for casual purposes.

Canon Powershot A1200

 

The Canon Powershot A1200 is a straightforward, inexpensive digital camera. It takes a very good snapshot and offers fantastic value for money. It is one of the few digital cameras to offer a viewfinder. It has 12 megapixels and a 4x optical zoom lens.

Picture quality - viewfinder - value for money - High Definition movies

Over strong pink skin tones - shutter lag times

If you are looking for a simple digital camera that offers that bit of extra quality for a low price then the Canon Powershot A1200 could well be your answer. It offers greater picture quality than a lot of more expensive digital cameras. There are...

PowerShot A1200

 

Viewfinder is a great fallback for the low light photo settings, so I didn't take many points off for the image quality on the LCD in those settings.

4x Optical zoom, Viewfinder, simple controls, very reasonable price

In low light settings I noticed that the picture seemed grainy on the LCD, but fortunatly didn't show up in the photo
