Canon EOS 1200D specifications

The Canon EOS 1200D ensures that your special memories can be relived in vivid, beautiful detail and remembered for years to come. Colourful, high quality stills - perfect for creating large-scale prints as gifts or for showcasing proudly around the home - are captured using an 18.0 MP APS-C CMOS sensor and Canon's DIGIC 4 processor. As light levels fade, the images you capture will look just as vibrant, thanks to the camera's impressive low light capabilities. A 9-point AF system featuring points spread right across the frame ensures that no matter what you are shooting, the entire scene is captured in striking, detailed quality. With rapid continuous shooting you can also shoot a series of images at up to three frames per second - ideal for capturing bursts of fast moving action.

The Canon EOS app provides a range of expert tutorials and step-by-step exercises to take you through photography basics at a pace to suit you, with an ‘Inspire' section suggesting combinations of popular subjects such as pets or people, with photographic instructions, such as information about speed or perspective. The Canon app also features a troubleshooting guide to provide helpful tips on improving your photos and combating the most common type of problems, such as blurry or overexposed images, as well as tips on composition for groups and landscapes.

Full HD video controls

For those moments that need to be relived time and time again, the Canon EOS 1200D also shoots impressive Full HD video (1080p). A wide range of easy-to-use controls gives you the freedom to get creative with movies as your skills develop - offering control of exposure, focus and sound levels so special moments are captured just as you enjoyed them. For a professionally edited feel, Video Snapshot mode allows you to record a series of short video clips and automatically joins them together in the camera for a summary movie of your occasion. Adding a unique twist to each shot can be achieved with just a touch of a button, thanks to the Canon EOS 1200D's range of in-camera Creative filters. A choice of five different popular artistic styles, such as Miniature effect, Fish-eye and Toy camera, can be applied either before or after a shot is taken - allowing you to instantly add a creative feel to enhance the drama and atmosphere, or simply bring a completely different perspective to your images.
