Canon EOS 1200D Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
20 December 2014
  • Excerpt: The Canon 1200D has been deliberately targeted at the first time digital SLR purchaser and to this end it its hits the mark beautifully. In my mind its a bargain given what you get. When I bought my first entry level DLSR it was way more expensive and did not come close to the 1200D in terms of its performance. Straight out of the box you will be able to start capturing both photo's and videos at a very impressive quality.
