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.

Comments about Canon Canon A1200 PowerShot Digital Camera (Black):

Would be nice to include a complete users guide. Size is great; viewfinder, too. Hard to find a viewfinder at this pricepoint. Very unhappy about the short battery life. Rechargeables are not practical all the time.

Comments about Canon Canon A1200 PowerShot Digital Camera (Black):

The wheel that switches between video and still photos is very sturdy, when you click it over, it's going to stay. When you set it, it won't get knocked into another setting. You can change so much about the quality of the video, you can use black and white or sepia tones, it's really neat!
