The Canon EOS 1200D DSLR Camera is an 18MP APS-C format DSLR camera with a DIGIC 4 image processor.
The combination of the 1200D’s CMOS sensor and DIGIC 4 image processor provide high clarity, a wide tonal range, and natural color reproduction. With an ISO range of 100-6400 (expandable to 12800), you can shoot in low-light situations, reducing the need for a tripod or a flash. The nine-point autofocus system includes one center cross-type AF point to deliver accurate focus in both landscape and portrait orientations.
You can capture Full HD 1080p video by way of the 1200D’s dedicated Live View/Movie Recording button, at 30, 25, or 24 fps. Additionally, the camera can also record HD video in 720p at 60 and 50 fps, and 480p at 30 and 35 fps.
The 3″ rear LCD screen has 460,000 pixels, and a 170° viewing angle, making it ideal for menu navigation, composing in Live View, and reviewing or sharing your photos and videos.
The EOS 1200D is compatible with the full line of Canon EF and EF-S lenses.
