Overview

Shoot Your Way with this Easy, Affordable New Camera.

Sleekly redesigned in classic Black or Silver, the new PowerShot A1200 digital camera is all about capturing your memories your way. An Optical Viewfinder gives you an easy, familiar alternative to composing shots with an LCD screen. Smart AUTO takes care of all the details while you focus on getting the shot you want, by intelligently selecting the proper settings for the camera based on 32 predefined shooting situations. And now you can preserve your memories exactly the way you see them in incredibly true-to-life 720p HD. With 12.0 Megapixels, you'll be able to blow up your shots without losing a single detail, and the 4x Wide-Angle (28mm) Optical Zoom gets you close to the action quickly. The camera uses AA batteries, so you'll have power anytime, anywhere. New Discreet Mode lets you shoot where you never could before, by disabling sound, flash and AF beam. Looking to put a little artistry in your photography? New Creative Filters mode makes it easy with appealing options like Fisheye Effect, Miniature Effect, Monochrome and more.
 

Features

It's Your Choice: LCD or Optical Viewfinder.
The PowerShot A1200 digital camera gives you a choice that's getting increasingly hard to find on digital cameras today. It's equipped with an Optical Viewfinder in addition to the LCD screen. Many photographers prefer this classic, familiar option that lets you simply hold the camera to your eye and shoot.

The camera's big, bright LCD screen gives you a wealth of important information about the shot. However, using it to compose and focus requires that you hold the camera away from your body. Many people do this with one hand, arms away from the body, effectively creating camera shake that can distort a shot. Using the Optical Viewfinder helps ensure that the camera is held steady. The great thing is that from shot to shot, whether you use the Optical Viewfinder or LCD screen is your choice.

Everything's Easy.
Just set the Canon PowerShot A1200 digital camera to Smart AUTO and you're ready for maximum enjoyment from your picture-taking every time. It's a relaxing and satisfying way to shoot because you can completely concentrate on your subject knowing that the camera has the technical details covered. Advanced Canon technology intelligently analyzes your situation and shooting conditions. Then it automatically selects an appropriate setting from 32 specially defined settings.

In Still Images or 720p HD Video, Every Detail is Beautifully Preserved.
PowerShot A1200 digital camera puts you in charge when it comes to saving your memories. Canon technology lets you capture beautiful still images no matter what your level of photographic experience. Portraits of people posing or in motion, outdoor shots in various weather situations, nighttime shooting and more: the camera handles them all with ease when you shoot in Smart AUTO. High megapixel counts let you blow up and crop your still images just as you please, with no loss in resolution or quality.

Want to capture the good times in motion? Canon's 720p HD video gives your memories the quality they deserve. If you've never shot video in high definition before, you'll be amazed at the difference it makes. 720p HD delivers stunning realism, capturing every detail with a level of clarity that, in playback, will bring you right back into the moment. Easy high definition videos from a compact still camera - now that's value!

See the Image on a Big Screen.
The PowerShot A1200 digital camera has a large 2.7-inch LCD screen that gives you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear and bright picture. It also features Night Display for easy viewing in low light.

Photographic Artistry That's Easy for Anyone.
Fisheye Effect imparts a fun, familiar curvilinear distortion to your image that's ideal for kids and pets. Miniature Effect plays with perspective, giving any shot the look of a world created in much smaller proportions - great for landscapes and city shots. When you shoot in Toy Camera Effect, you get the vintage effect of a first-generation camera, ideal for giving portraits a slightly distorted, unevenly saturated look of a picture you'd come across in your attic. Monochrome lends a moody beauty to your photography, producing shots in Black & White, Sepia or Blue. Super Vivid saturates colors to heighten the intensity and impact of any shot. Poster Effect takes away transitions between objects in the frame to give your image the high-impact look of a hand-painted poster.
