A modest update to the EOS 1100D, but excellent value I quite liked the EOS 1100D (but felt it was a bit dated despite being a bargain price) so was quite keen to try this to see what improvements Canon had made.The answer is some, but probably not as many as I expected.I’ll list out the key areas where the EOS 1200D is improved over the 1100D+ 18mp CMOS sensor (same as many other Canon’s) up from the 12mp CMOS+ Build does feel a bit better in the hand, the grip is now textured v the smooth one on the older model+ The rear LCD is now 3″ 460k dots v the 2.7″ 230k EOS 1100D, quite a bit better, and sharper but not up to the 600d’s high res+ You now have full HD video 1920 x 1080 at 30/25fps v 1280 x 720 (mono no mic socket) sound levels can be adjusted, and movie length is now 29:59 secs rather than the 17 minutes on the older model+ Raw can now be shot at 3fps v 2fps, the raw buffer is 6 frames+ You have various creative filter “effects” you can apply to images, soft focus/toy camera…

Cheaper than a 1.4x teleconverter… Still smiling Bought a Canon 1200D to use on a 150-500 zoom lens for wildlife work in ‘difficult circumstances’ where I didn’t want to risk my 5D2 and for when I needed extra reach (on the 1200 I get nearly 800mm of zoom due to the FOV maths). 18 mpix for the 1200 against 21 mpix for the 5D2 but lots less cropping.. I’m still (really) smiling .Did some sums, it was cheaper to buy the 1200D than buy a 1.4 teleconverter and I didn’t lose a stop either. Can’t comment on the included lens as I haven’t used it but absolutely delighted with the 1200 body on the big zoom. Of course it looks ridiculous, it’s tiny compared to the size of the lens, Do I care? Not at all, the results speak for themselves,It works superbly. I am absolutely gob-smacked with the images. The lack of weight on the combination means I can shoot for hours without wearing out my arms and shoulders, I’ve invested in some decent silicone armour for the body and despite some VERY heavy use the 1200D hasn’t complained once. If it breaks…
