4,5 stars for this outdated at launch piece of crap?!.

1 it’s sensor is not new it’s 5 years old and showing. In terms of dynamic range it’s worse then a compact which is roughly the same price and fits in your pocket. The original rx100.

2 3 fps is less then everyone yet you guys still give it 4,5 star

3 digic 4 is 6 years old now. Why still use the bloody outdated thing.

4 viewfinder magnification is worst in class.

5 1 cross type AF. Canon could have gotten an edge over Nikon here with their all cross type AF module. However no interest

6 no on sensor phase detect. Even the 100d has it. Live view is beyond poor on this model.

7 no WiFi while still raving about the companion app. This is misleading and should be condemned.

8 no stm lens bundled. The is lens is a very poor performer with noisy AF.

Still you guys gave it 4,5 star for what?!.
The Pentax k500 offer so much more for less money. Recommending this is basicly ripping someone off. Please quit your job as a journalist and start working for the canon marketing team. It’s quiet obvious that they pay you already anyway.

An outrageous review and score.

Please stop cheating your readers with such NONSENSE.

I know you are not allowed to give a bad review as it affects your relationship with Canon, Nikon etc, so maybe skip reviewing cameras altogether?  This site needs to regain some dignity.

Um. Have to agree with the other comments. The rating is too high by far.

Would much rather get the D3300 to be honest, far superior -

I don’t know from where you have copy-pasted the following characteristics “stainless steel chassis and all-aluminium exterior” but I’m sure you haven’t took that from the official product description.
On the official UK product webpage “” we find this: “Body Materials:
Carbon fiber/glass fiber-reinforced polycarbonate resin”
So, what else is mistaken in your review?
Thank you.

I give 7,9 star for this toy. This is the best cam to create unusual bokeh. Couple weeks ago i took a pic of raghead bro-hood in a smokey bar in dearborn MI using blur effect n submitted it to a well-known microstock agency. It was approved and was sold 194 times in 13 days.

I find the comments here from users bit hars.
you can see the samples and you can try out the camera in store.
One opinion is always different from others.
however on this webside you can view the pictures and come to the conclusion if you like it or not.

the 1200D is a great basic camera,it do what it have to do take good pictures.
It is a step up from the 1100D ,but it is stil a basic camera.body 309 euro,s If you think you get a steal body for this prise,common think.

you get a bigger screen and 6 more Mpixels.
all the rest is the same slicht better sensor better noise supressor.
All in all a great prise and camera.
