Full HD Movies
It's as easy to shoot movies with the EOS 1200D as it is to shoot photos. Just select movie mode on the camera's mode dial and press the start/stop button to begin recording the sights and the sounds around you in Full HD.

Easily create simple stories with Video Snapshot mode, which records short clips of 2, 4, or 8 seconds that can be played back together as a video slideshow in camera or on your home computer.

Capture details and ambience, even in dark conditions
When light levels get low the EOS 1200D boosts its sensitivity to light so your pictures stay sharp and you can reduce the need to use flash. Shooting with ambient light is a great way of capturing the atmosphere of an occasion, and remaining discreet.

Easy-to-use with EOS Companion app
Shooting with a DSLR doesn’t have to be complicated. In addition to the EOS 1200D’s built-in Feature Guide, which explains the camera’s functions using plain and simple language, is EOS Companion – a smartphone app that explains the basics of photography, and how to get started with your new EOS camera. Use EOS Companion to explore the features and functions of the camera, discover new tips and tricks, and learn how to deal with tricky photographic situations.

Scene Intelligent Auto mode
When you compose a photograph using the EOS 1200D the camera analyses the scene too, looking for brightness, colour and the presence of movement and faces. This information is used to set the most appropriate camera settings for the scene, whether it’s a detail-packed landscape or fast-moving action.

Creative Filters
Use one of five Creative filters to add a personal touch to your photography, including Grainy Black & White to Toy Camera and Fish Eye effect.
