Manufacturer's Description

Capture images with more depth, detail and creativity – the Canon EOS 1200D DSLR Camera with 18-55 mm + 75-300 mm Telephoto Zoom Lens is your gateway to better photography.

Capture the special moments in life
At the core of this compact body sits an 18 megapixel APS-C image sensor that works in conjunction with the powerful Canon DIGIC 4 processing engine. The image sensor captures more light detail before the processing chip swiftly renders the image to give you a beautifully sharp image with rich and natural tones.

The 1200D captures the mood of any occasion; photos are rich in detail and smooth in focus. You can capture the world as you see it, the ambient light, exposure control and image stabilisation work to produce images that are full of life. Shoot indoors or in challenging light and marvel at the sharp, shake-free photos you can achieve without the need of a flash.

Capture the scene with ease
Taking beautiful portraits, stunning landscapes, dramatic close-ups and special moments has never been easier. The EOS 1200D has been designed to be quick, simple and fun to use, with effortless operability and flawless functionality.

A bright optical viewfinder shows the world in true-to-life detail while the Scene Intelligent Auto mode ensures each composition is captured with the right combination of settings, giving you more time to frame the scene and capture your creative vision.

A built-in Feature Guide explains the features and functions of the 1200D – you’ll be snapping striking photos in no time.

There’s also a handy EOS Companion app available for download, helping you to get started and even teaching you how to capture better photographs.

Features and functions
Use the camera’s auto and manual focusing to take control of the creativity, with 9-point focusing system reaching the whole subject area.

Draw attention to the subject by playing with the depth of field, and shoot with a shallow-focus for other effects. There’s plenty of scope for taking creative control and shooting the moment with your own stamp. Furthermore, the subject-based modes have been tailor-made for different themes, allowing you to experiment easily.

Continuous shooting mode can fire a rapid burst of images at 3 frames per second. This is ideal for shooting those fast-moving moments that may escape the frame.

Capturing movies
The Canon EOS 1200D interchangeable camera features Full HD movie capabilities. Tell the story in an HD video clip which you can watch back on a large screen TV. A Video Snapshot mode allows you to capture short 2, 4 or 8 second video clips before stitching them together in a fun and enjoyable sequence.

Capture those amazing moments in life with the compact, intuitive and intelligent Canon EOS 1200D DSLR Camera with 18-55 mm + 75-300 mm Telephoto Zoom Lens.

Carried in style and comfort
You can store, carry and protect your camera equipment in this padded and reinforced Canon 100EG Deluxe Gadget Bag.

A stylish safe hold
The bag has been designed to provide enough space for up to 2 camera bodies and up to 4 lenses, as well as room for other essentials such as batteries and memory cards. The 100-EG’s convenient padded pockets mean that it’s ideal for organising all your accessories.

The Canon 100EG Deluxe Gadget Bag is made out of durable materials, so it will efficiently shield your equipment from dust, moisture and general wear and tear. A shoulder strap is also included with your Canon 100EG Deluxe Gadget Bag, for easy and comfortable transport of your photographic equipment.
