An 8 are you out of your minds for this?!Just to name a few more cons.
Smallest viewfinder of all DSLRs.Low dynamic rangeBad I so performance. Just check dxo the 5-6 year old digic 4 combined with this 5 year old sensor is simply outdated.Bad noisy kit lens. They have an good stm kit lens which is not available with this.
That would make it an 5-6 out of 10 and an avoid if possible rating
I'm new to photography, and this is my first DSLR. None of those things you rattled off mean anything to me, I love the camera, and I'm excited to take pictures with it. You're simply expecting too much out of it, it's a beginners camera, and it suits me just fine.
I made this reply a year ago.This camera was $500-600 and it performed worse then any Dslr on the market. And it still does.
You may be happy with it. But it's slower provides worse image quality and has nothing to make it stand out to any of it's peers.
You made a wrong buying decission and you like it well that's fine but does not make the product competitive
Nikon ? Sony ? Pentax afficionado ?Canon 1200D is one of the best camera in its class. Again, in its class ! Having practically a Canon 600D at this price is fantastic !Very good sales all over the world ! Why ? Because is a bad camera ? Because the idiots are in love with it ?Nope !It's a superb entry class camera !
Best in class?!The pentax k500 same class has similar noise levels but more dynamic rangeA 100% viewfinderTwice the resolution rear lcd Shoots 5 fps.
The d3300 has a sensor that is better then the one in the 7d mk2. Again with a better rear lcd and shoots 5 fps despite the 24mp.
The sony a58.100% coverage and much larger viewfinder6fpsBetter sensor.Better rear lcd.
Then it is NOT a 600dIt does not have the sensor cleaningNor the crisp lcd. It doesn't have a flip-out screen. Not to mention the 600d is pretty dated these days as well.
Now.why they sell it.Brand recognition and marketingYou can find one on sale in the folders of electronics department stores across the whole planet. It's not a good camera and never will be.
Pentax k500 has only a 16 megapixels sensors.Nikon d3300 needs a live histogram and a higher-resolution feed. The movie mode would still benefit from a truly working full-time AF feature.Sony SLT A58 is (a bit) in other class. Hasn't an optical wiewfinder but an electronic one. With some +, but also with some -.A hybrid between A37 & A57.We need a lot of discussions. In fact everybody is free to have its own opinion. I like Canon 1200D !
Like 16mp and 18mp with a slightly smaller sensor would ever make a difference in terms of actual detail captured.
The 16mp sony has less noise in shadow area's and the files can be pushed.a.lot more 2-3stops at the lower iso's.
High resolution feed?!No camera is quick enough to give us 24mp live feed in live view.
You can argue the whole day about evf vs ovf. But you can't argue with 3 vs 6 fps.
If you like the 1200d you must have pretty low standards. Canon basicly putted all their dusted dated crap into 1 piece of missery.
haha Barney Klingenberg you are one sour and angry man who has too much time to put a lot of negativity into creating an argument for not buying something...which makes me think why on earth are you even looking at a page dedicated to the 1200D if you don't like it?! You either work for a competitor or have too much time on your hands ;)
Plus, despite what you say, even if there are 'better' cameras out there, just like the first 'Emmit' said, it suits their needs which is EXACTLY what marketing and product development is about. The business I own may not be perfect but it suits exactly what the customer needs and makes money because of it. Just look at Apple. Not the best phones but made the company the wealthiest company to EVER exist.
Because i want people to enjoy their photography with a p[roper camera that they can grow upon.
And the 1200d is so terrible that it doesn't suit anyone but the Canon board that get's rid of all their outdated scrap parts that were already at their last legs about 3 years ago.
barney is just a nikon fanboy ;)
Makes sense since i mentioned a pentax and sony as well.I don't even own a Nikon body at this point. But it's impossible to argue about the sensor performance.
Read the comments, majority were pretty much don't touch so I went straight out for the Olympus Pen. Thankyou comment's I truly appreciate you. :D
