Excellent Camera....

This is an excellent camera.... A must buy for beginners...

I had ordered it on 27th sept and on 1st of oct. It was at my doorstep..

Flipkart never compromise with its promise but the only error occured in my case this time was that I had ordered a "Black" camera and they sent me a "Silver"... Since I was in an urgency I had to accept the delivery......

The customer support was helpful and they promised to replace the order when I called back, but since I was in an urgency I told them I'm OKAY... "Since color has nothing to do with the performance of this camera which is excellent"....

I had got everything in my box as told with extra accessories like an 8 GB SDHC card alongwith a battery charger and carry case.....

The camera has excellent features of which the HD video is good....

Best Deal.... For every day photography

I had been searching for a cost effective camera and my search ended here!... @ the a price of Rs 4360/-
The camera is really a marvel in its capabilities. It is loaded with various creative functions, as well as the P mode allows you to 've a decent amount of control over the photography. The camera is also ergonomically designed.
It also gives a combined zoom of 16x!.... Even though it lacks IS technology, it is counteracted with the 2 sec self timer option.
Its a wonderful performer for anyone who loves photography!!!

The software CD which comes along is of great utility, in organizing and managing the photos. It also has option to customize the camera!!! I Personalized the start up screen, sounds et all!!!

The battery backup is also great, thanks to the various power saving options and also the viewfinder.

I strongly recommend this camera for, any one who would like to buy an excellent camera at the lowest possible price.

Only drawback that you can say about this camera is, when we use the continuous shot drive mode, its a tad slow it takes few seconds to re-shoot, if you 've to shoot with flash on it furthers the delay.

I would like to thank the flipkart, for giving be the actual reviews of the products, and also for the best price.
The order was also placed within 28 hours!!! The packing was also excellent!!

My first review for the best camera.....

i prefer A1200 ,have one with me,purchased 3 weeks ago( sorry not from here...). did a lot of research before buying this camera. if you want a good low budget camera ( below INR 4500) this is the best option.

-Stylish and expensive look
-Excellent picture quality
-A lot of features ( smile, wink ,face detection.Miniature effect.etc..& all common features)
-720p HD Recording (no other camera within INR 5000 has this feature)
-Free 4 GB card, two 2100 mAh rechargeable Battery and charger (i got it all for INR 4350/-)
-A lot of customizations ( themes,start up image,sound.....)

-No image stabilization (has a software supported image stabilization but the image quality reduces to 2 MP)
-Night shots taken without flash and without tripod is too grainy (but with a tripod or a stable support other than your hand and the built in "night mode" feature the night shots are excellent even without flash)
-Half of the camera manual is with the device the rest is in the CD provided with it
-Make a little bit of sound( but can be silenced withe the "discrete mode"
-The rechargeable battery that comes free with it took 14 hrs to recharge(may be thats why its given free)

conclu:Value for money

Best for every day as well as Special day Photography

I was a little bit choosy for deciding which one to buy as my first Digital Camera.
As their were so many 'well known' Brand Cameras available in 3K-5K Price range (As my budget price is 5K) it takes some time to research on other user's reviews.

Now after using it for 10 days or so, I am rating it 4.5 Out of 5.

1.LONG Lasting Battery Life and obviously Special Thanks to Optical Viewfinder for That
2.Excellent Value of Price, You cannot ask any more in this Price
3.Really GOOD Picture Quality
4.Nice Features
5.Great Performance, I've found some reviews earlier that it lags in speed. But after using it I don't feel it is SLOW! Maybe not the FASTEST but you don't need to be that speedy for capturing a Photo WITHOUT in some SPECIAL CASES.
6.Easy to Carry and Handle, it is small and very lightweight.
7.EXCELLENT Video Recording Quality, This the BEST feature in this Camera. Believe me you cannot imagine more better option than a 720p HD video recording feature from this price range cameras.

1.Focusing and ISO adjustments are the Tricky feature in this Camera. You need to use it more in different cases with different modes to get familiar with it. Auto focusing does not seem to work perfectly in some cases.
2.Blur reduction mode is not a good replacement of shake reduction.
3.You cannot expect good picture quality from Full Zoom mode capture. It gets a bit hazy.

So, this is my First 10 Day's usage Review. I am having Fun with this camera and I am TOTALLY satisfied with it as well as

I have never seen such a performer point and shoot camera in such a reasonable price. It is unbeleivable that video quality is distinguish i have never seen such a excellent video quaity before,i am sure it's a world's best cheapest camera, beleive me it will not let you down, go with it buy with confidence. i have seen a lot cameras till the range of 30,000 but did not found view finder but in Canon A1200 has view finder if your camera going out of battery you can switch off the display for more shots, One very importat thing i have noticed i have used so many brands and find that when we zoom during video caputuring voice can not record but in Canon A1200 it records voice during zoom in video mode, i am wonder why Canon A1200 is sold in this price it's a opportunity to grap it don't miss it buy now i you need entry level digital camera there is only on choice that is Canon A1200
