Good, simple camera

William D Harris, Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this inexpensive model of Canon to take photos to send over the Internet. I am not a fancy photographer. I just want to take photos to send to friends. It is a Canon. That is a good reason to buy it. I also like that it has an optical viewer for sunny days that wash out the digital screen and I like that it uses easily replaceable batteries.

A1200 is OK

Joseph N. Stennett, Amazon
24 May 2012
  • Summary: The A1200 is just what I wanted; a point-and-shoot with an optical viewfinder at a very reasonable price. I am not thrifty, but I wanted a camera that I can keep on hand without worrying about damage or loss. The pictures are pretty good--this is a point-and-shoot after all. The resolution noticeably better than my wife's Droid and it is slightly better than my old Olympus with 2.1 MP. Meaning that pixel count ain't everything. The files are huge--like 2-3 megabytes.

  • Excerpt: I just returned from 5 weeks overseas holidays. Took two cameras, Pentax K100D and a Canon A1200. Purchased the Canon for the holidays as I anticipated that the Pentax would be a bit bulky and heavy for a lot of the time. Thought I would use Canon at night and for discreet shots in museums/restaurants etc. Ended up using the Canon for most of the shots!

Great little camera

Petlover, Amazon
4 February 2012
  • Summary: I've been happy with this camera so far. Love the ability to use a viewfinder. The video is nice too. Some people commented on the grainy display...this only happens in low light and it does not affect the pictures.

Nice and Simple!

Patchy Fog, Amazon

  • Summary: OK, here are the facts: my other (similar) camera developed a glitch -- it will not allow me to delete photos without loooooong delays. So I went in search of an inexpensive replacement camera. I settled on this Canon. I did so with trepidation because some of the reviews were lukewarm at best. Yet other reviewers loved it. (This, by the way, is what makes horse races!) So I thought I would take a chance.

Canon Powershot A1200 Review

Bill, Amazon
23 October 2011
  • Summary: This little guy does everything I wanted it to do, and so far, seems to have more features than I would normally use. Everything works well, and I am very pleased with the overall quality of the product. It is an exceptional value for the money. I would recommend it for most casual and intermediate level users that want a very nice point and shoot camera.

  • Excerpt: I bought this machine for taking pictures in rough conditions where the camera has a high chance of getting smashed. This is a very cheap machine, and to my great pleasure takes quality snaps even in low light conditions. Reasonably easy to set up, and relatively easy to alter settings on the fly, it's quite versatle. Up until ISO 400, there isn't much noise, and the basement pictures I've taken are quite crisp. And I regard an optical viewfinder as an important item.
