Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

Compact and easy to use, the Canon EOS 1200D DSLR Camera delivers dynamic and professional-looking results.

Capture the special moments in life

At the core of this entry-level DSLR body sits an 18 megapixel APS-C image sensor that works in conjunction with the powerful Canon DIGIC 4 processing engine. The image sensor captures more light detail before the processing chip swiftly renders the image to give you a beautifully sharp image with rich and natural tones.

The 1200D captures the mood of any occasion. Photos are rich in detail and smooth in focus - capture the world as you see it, the ambient light and exposure control working to produce images that are full of life. Shoot indoors or in challenging light and marvel at the sharp, shake-free photos you can achieve without the need of a flash.

Capture the scene with ease

Taking beautiful portraits, stunning landscapes, dramatic close-ups and special moments has never been easier. The EOS 1200D has been designed to be quick, simple and fun to use, with effortless operability and flawless functionality.

A bright optical viewfinder shows the world in true-to-life detail while the Scene Intelligent Auto mode ensures each composition is captured with the right combination of settings, giving you more time to frame the scene and capture your creative vision.

A built-in Feature Guide explains the features and functions of the 1200D – you'll be snapping striking photos in no time.

There's also a handy EOS Companion app available for download, helping you to get started and even teaching you how to capture better photographs.

Features and functions

Use the camera's auto and manual focusing to take control of the creativity, with 9-point focusing system reaching the whole subject area.

Draw attention to the subject by playing with the depth of field, and shoot with a shallow-focus for other effects. There's plenty of scope for taking creative control and shooting the moment with your own stamp. Furthermore, the subject-based modes have been tailor-made for different themes, allowing you to experiment easily.

Continuous shooting mode can fire a rapid burst of images at 3 frames per second. This is ideal for shooting those fast-moving moments that may escape the frame.

Capturing movies

The Canon EOS 1200D interchangeable camera features Full HD movie capabilities. Tell the story in an HD video clip which you can watch back on a large screen TV. A Video Snapshot mode allows you to capture short 2, 4 or 8 second video clips before stitching them together in a fun and enjoyable sequence.

Capture those amazing moments in life with the compact, intuitive and intelligent Canon EOS 1200D DSLR Camera.
