Canon EOS 1200D Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens, HD 1080p, 18MP, 3" LCD Screen

Product information

Tailored for beginners, powerful enough for the pros - the Canon EOS 1200D is an excellent DSLR for anyone who wants to push their abilities further. The powerful CMOS sensor absorbs more detail in every shot while a broad ISO range gives you the freedom to take natural looking low light photos. With Full HD recording, high quality videos are only a button-push away.

18MP sensor
Shoot photos and video with a quality and character all of their own. 18-megapixel images from the EOS 1200D are packed with detail and are large enough to be printed at sizes up to A2+. Videos have a professional look and feel that looks great played back on your home HDTV.

Feature guide
When you compose a photograph using the EOS 1200D the camera analyses the scene too, looking for brightness, colour and the presence of movement and faces. This information is used to set the most appropriate camera settings for the scene, whether it’s a detail-packed landscape or fast-moving action. A built-in Feature Guide, and supporting app, help you learn more about your camera whenever you want.

Viewfinder & 3” screen
An optical viewfinder allows you to compose and anticipate your shot, so you’ll always be ready to capture the emotion behind the moment. With its friendly controls that are instinctive to use, and a large 3-inch LCD screen for image review, the EOS 1200D is a joy to use.

Creative filters
Emphasise the main subject in a photo by isolating it against a soft, blurred background - a look characteristic of DSLR photography. Use one of five Creative filters to add a personal touch to your photography, including Grainy Black & White to Toy Camera and Fish Eye effect.

9 focus points
Keep subjects looking sharp by placing them underneath one of the EOS 1200D’s nine focusing points. These are spread out across the viewfinder, letting you place your subject either in the middle of the frame or off-centre, for a more interesting composition.

Canon app
Use the accompanying EOS Companion app to explore the features and controls of your EOS 1200D and learn about how different lenses can deliver new creative options and capture different subjects. Interactive tutorials and assignments will inspire you and help you develop your skills.

Feeling creative?

One of the biggest advantages of this camera is the sheer shooting flexibility on offer. You can use additional lenses to take wide-angle, telephoto, or close-up shots to suit just about any situation. The shorter the focal length (measured in mm), the wider the view will be – the longer the focal length, the more telescopic the picture. With a selection of interchangeable lenses at your disposal, the creative possibilities are endless.

Note: Please check the compatibility of the lens with your camera.

Q & As

Canon EOS 1200D Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm Lens, HD 1080p, 18MP, 3" LCD Screen 5 5 2 2
First class I recently bought this camera using some of our wedding present vouchers from Peter Jones on Sloane Square and it is truly excellent. I've done quite a lot of photography and wanted to take it up a level, so I needed something easy to use, shooting high quality images of places, spaces and people. This camera hits the mark on all fronts. The upload process is simple to Macbook Pro, the battery life is good and I've been very pleased with the HDR and other images I've created using this piece of kit. With a big memory card and a decent case (both bought at JL as well), you are good to go anywhere in the world and produce truly magnificent images. Fully recommended. The staff in the photography section at Peter Jones were excellent as well, making the buying process most enjoyable. Great work all round. 03 September 2014
perfect first time DSLR camera I've had a few digital cameras over the years and this one is by far the best to date. Even being at the lower end of Canon's range it's still a fantastic entry level camera and the picture quality is amazing, I love it! 08 July 2014
