WOW ... I love it

After a year of its purchasing it is working much fine beyond my expectation and as I have purchased Cannon A400 some 7 years ago that is also working thus I am quite sure this will also work for such a long time :)

Cheers to Flipkart and all the Flipkartians!!!

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

Great Buy for the Price

Great Flash
Optical Viewfinder
Nice build quality
Great Autofocus and scene modes
great picture quality in normal lighting(indoor and outdoor)
wider telephoto is better at capturing shots
gr888 flipkart service

Like all cams in this range low light shots are grainy, though better than my fuji av200

a great buy for the price..

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, i

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

Worth the Penny..!

Before buying i was really not sure about its performance as it was low priced. But since I got it I thought it was 'worth the money spent'.

Its a descent camera with all the essential features. The 'Easy' mode enables even a beginner to make perfect shots. The View finder saves a lot of power

The only thing that disappointed me was the absence of 'Image Stabilization' but instead they have included a alternate feature called 'Blur Reduction' mode (U'll have to compromise on the quality if shot in BR)

Overall, Its the best for home use.

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 zoo

Excellent Picture quality

Been using this for 6 months, Excellent Pic quality, It has some good functions and useless picture effects. The viewfinder is useful for for taking more pics with display turned off. Good battery life. The downside is the free charger that comes with it, it wont show when battery is done charging. But hey the camera is ore worth than its price. Also i forgot to mention, i noticed the flash charging is a bit longer than the camera's my friend has, but since i rarely use flash, i don't find it a problem.

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 ear

Just buy it... But say a complete no no to free batteries...

All i wanted was a simple camera which i can use very casually. So, while i was searching for one, i put these factors as criteria for shortlisting:

1. Cost
2. Brand (Nikon/Canon)
3. Light Weight
4. Looks

Canon 1200 topped the list! Then i didn't waste even a single moment. Flipkart, as usual, delivered the product right on time.
When i bought this, in July, the price was around 3800 Rs. And, yes, it is light weight as well. I got a black one and i feel that's the sexiest one among all...
Picture clarity is reasonably good in day light and at night, ya, a bit o

Hey All my Friends,

This is the best camera with best performance also at a Reasonable Price from well known brand Canon.

for best picture experience run Camera in 'P' ( program ) mode
and set ISO accordingly low to high say, to capture nearest picture set ISO to 80 and accordingly low to high.

I am capturing Pictures Cristal clear and Sharp and video quality is unbelievable and awesome............

Received Camera very Late due to late shipment by flip kart as answered by flip kart consumer support.

Great fun....
