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.
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.
Discover DSLR photography with EOS Companion app
Use the accompanying EOS Companion app to explore the features and controls of your EOS 1200D and learn about how different lenses can deliver new creative options and capture different subjects. Interactive tutorials and assignments will inspire you and help you develop your skills.
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. With its friendly controls that are instinctive to use, and a large 7.5cm (3”) LCD screen for image review, the EOS 1200D is a joy to use.
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 & White to 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.
