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

    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 a...

    -720p HD Recording (no other camera within INR 5000 has this feature)

    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 i...

    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...

    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.....

    amazingg>>>>product for the price

    i was really fascinated seeing the options of video capturing in the tiny and elegant canon camera. Its really rare to see HD video capturing options with enabled zooming within.... all credits to the manufacturers, awesome!!

    stills i took this far made me feel really commanding, be it the options provided or the attractive macro mode focusing.

    user interface used in the camera is also quite simple and easy to understand.

    And FLIP KART as usual great in delivery and best in packing...i'm...
