So you have been contemplating a digital camera, but are afraid that all the cameras in the market are complicated to use. Which is the ideal camera one should buy if you’re a beginner in photography? This is the question on most minds, when it comes to purchasing an easy-to-use camera. Many camera manufacturers have launched entry-level compact cameras keeping these consumers in mind. One of these manufacturers is Canon, and they are catering to this audience by launching the Canon PowerShot A1200. Read on to see if this is the ideal camera for you.
Design and Build Quality
Canon has not compromised on the looks of this camera. Usually, entry-level cameras are not as fancy looking as their expensive counterparts. But, that’s not the case with the A1200. The aspect of its design, which appealed to us the most is the camera’s body that is moulded to give the right side of the body contours a handgrip. The camera we received is matte black all over, giving it a classy look.
All matte black finish
On the face of the camera lies the lens, view finder, auto-focus assist and the LED flash. Though this camera is small in size, the placement of these parts on the face of the camera doesn't look cluttered. On the rear of the camera is the 2.7-inch screen that is flush against the body, thereby helping it retain its compact appearance. The buttons are located to the right of the screen and they are adequately spaced. The buttons like the rest of the body are rounded and made of plastic.
Handgrip assists in the handling of this camera
Above the screen is a view-finder, which gives this camera an expensive look. To the top of this compact camera is the jog dial for navigating between the different camera modes, the shutter release button that’s placed alongside a zoom rocker and the on/off button. All these buttons are pretty sturdy and solid. Along the right side of the camera are the connections, which are a mini USB port and the analog AV port. These ports are concealed by a rubberized flap that's neat against the side of the A1200. On the underside, the flap for the battery bay is sturdy and has a locking mechanism. Overall, the design and build quality of this camera is good.
