The Canon PowerShot A1200 is a very low-priced point-and-shoot digital camera that sets a new standard in the budget digital camera class. It is capable of delivering the best quality photos in its class and offers lots of impressive features which usually can only be found on higher-end digital cameras.
Although the Canon PowerShot A1200’s body is made entirely of plastic, it still has a good build quality. As a matter of fact, the A1200 looks very good for a low-budget digital camera. Turn the A1200 around and you will find the main attraction of the camera, namely the integrated optical viewfinder, which is a rarity among compact digital cameras these days.
For only US$79.00, it is indeed very hard to be disappointed with the features that the A1200 has to offer, but the thing that initially attracts us to the A1200 is its built-in optical viewfinder, an increasingly hard-to-find feature on compact digital cameras these days, which is actually very useful for taking photos under bright lighting conditions.
