Canon EOS 1200D review

 

The entry-level DSLR market has slowed in terms of product releases in recent years. Indeed it's taken three years for Canon to out the 1200D - that's Rebel T5 for our American friends - and while we don't mind waiting for the right kit to come along...

Decent viewfinder-based performance for entry-level product, impressive image quality throughout, huge range of EOS lenses available, competitive price

Live view is poor, JPEG processing is a little harsh, plasticky build, compact system cameras may undermine its existence, kit lens limitations

The Canon EOS 1200D holds enough weight to keep the entry-level DSLR market relevant, although with compact system cameras adding an additional option it's not as cut and dry as it once was.

It's been a full three years since Canon last put out an entry-level DSLR camera, but in 2014 it's back in business with the EOS 1200D. The replacement

Canon 1200D review

 

Maybe this will be the next Bailey's first camera?

Affordable ; Textured coating ; Optical viewfinder

Slow focusing in Live View ; No touchscreen ; No Wi-Fi/NFC

Ratings in depth Despite the low price points, the entry level of the DSLR market is very important for building customer loyalty.

Canon EOS 1200D review

 

EOS quality at a breakthrough price, but it might be worth sniffing out a better deal

Canon Rebel T5/EOS 1200D fails to impress

 

You can find better deals than this umpteenth repackaging of years-old technology.

While it doesn't stand out particularly, the Canon EOS Rebel T5 does produce nice photos typical of its price class, its performance isn't bad, and it has a comfortable design.

The feature set is limited, even by entry-level standards.

While it's a perfectly fine camera when you're making the jump from a point-and-shoot, there are better choices than the Canon EOS Rebel T5.

Canon IXUS 300 IS review

 

The Canon IXUS 300 IS digital camera is somewhat confusing: the HS at the end of its name denotes neither high speed nor high sensitivity. However, it supports both high-speed video capture and has a high sensitivity lens that allows it to take photos...

Canon Ixus cameras have become a benchmark for compact cameras. The Canon IXUS 300 IS is no exception. It delivers clean and clear images and video footage across a range of shooting and light conditions and is a joy to use. With some fun functions to...

Canon EOS 1200D review: Still a worthy budget camera

 

EOS quality at a new lower price, the 1200D is a steal, provided you know where to look

This isn't the only low-cost SLR, though. The Pentax K-50 is only a little more expensive now at around £395, and is considerably more upmarket. The Sony A58 is better specified in various respects and costs as low as £289. Then there's the Nikon...
