It has minor design modifications with regard to 1100 D but sure does look more sleek and classy,there is a dedicated viewfinder which is an optical viewfinder hence the display can be switched of if required,the back consist of the 3 inch LCD display with the 4 way control buttons on the right side to control the ISO, AF, white balance, and drive modes with a dedicated q button for access to the settings.

The flash pops up with a button which is located on the main dial and almost all the buttons are placed in very handy positions and the camera is well designed and looks good.


As mentioned above the screen display is of 3 inches which is an LCD TFT screen with a 460 k  dot resolution and does look good and sharp,either you can use the viewfinder or work with the display screen as well.

Screen display is pretty bright and the viewing angles are good and decent and crisp,Whether in bright sunlight you will have the opinion of using the viewfinder to film the movies as it will prove to be difficult to operate the screen and view it as well.


The Canon Camera has a 18 megapixel sensor which captures the images brilliantly and the lens mount are fully compatible with the Canon EF and EF-S lenses which is pretty good.

It is readily available with these non-stabilized EF-S 18-55 mm f3.5-5.6 III or the EF-S 18-55 mm f3.5-5.6 IS II stabilized kit lens which are pretty good and help in zoom as well as capturing landscapes or portrait images.

The camera does switch to the continuous AF for moving objects and does provide clearer quality of video or images.The more high end models above of Canon EOS 1200D 18MP Digital SLR Camera use the digic 5 processor whereas the canon 1200 D uses the Digic 4 processor which is pretty decent and surely does get the job done pretty well.


The Canon EOS 1200D 18MP is a nice DSLR camera with most of the features which a camera enthusiast would require and many modes to choose and shoot from ,the view finder is neat and also the 3 inch screen performs well and the device also has interchangeable lens to suit your needs and is pretty portable due to its light weight,hence this is a really well built and good product.
