    Good, bad and bottom line - CNET Reviews


    Attractive, ultracompact design; easy operation; well-rounded, basic feature set.


    Photo quality dips above ISO 200; flat buttons can be difficult to press accurately.

    Bottom Line

    Simple and stylish, the Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS is a fine back-pocket camera as long as your photo-quality expectations are reasonable.

    Rated 4 out of 5★áby Ok camera good price Nothing special about it but a decent camera for the price. Does feel a bit cheaply made. 12/27/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby Awesome Camera I've used this camera for several months now. My favorite feature of this camera is the numerous preconfigured settings for different situations. It has preconfigured settings for everything from indoor shots, to sunsets, even fireworks! Bottom line, for the casual user that wants to take great photos without a lot of fuss, this is the camera to buy. 01/18/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby First digital camera This is the first digital camera I have ever had; finally gave up on my 20 year old film camera. Just printed out the Canon SD1200 pictures I took on a Mt Rushmore trip and they were great. Good clarity, good color.Thank you Canon, for making my foray into digital photography an excellent one. 08/07/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby Great little camera Enjoy using this camera. Took it out of the box, and the controls were immediately intuitive to use. The picture quality is excellent. I use this camera to augment my Canon DSLR when I need to travel light, or take quick shots of candid situations.Highly recommend this product to others looking for a great little camera. 01/09/2010
    Rated 4 out of 5★áby Happy Mama The Powershot 1200 is my wifes birthday present. She is very happy with it. I enjoy using it too. I also own a Canon EOS Rebel SLR. The compact powershot is just right for her purse whereas the EOS is a little much. 11/14/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby This is an excellant small digital camera.I have always used SLRs and was looking for a small digital camera with a viewfinder to carry in my purse. It has almost all the qualities and features of my Canon Rebel XTI. I figured that being a Canon it had to be good.I bought just before leaving on a trip and am very pleased with the photos taken.The rechargable battery seems to have a long life and the camera is easy to operate. I only wish it came with a "complete" instruction manual. Would buy this again. 02/04/2010
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby Elf cameras I have been buying and using one or more cameras since the early '40s and have made thousands of photos on many dozens of cameras. At present, I own and sometimes use an excellent top-of-the-line digital super long range tele, and close-up capabilities. But it is large and difficult to carry around. But now there are dozens of excellent tiny, pocketable digital cameras and nearly all excellent. But I wanted a camera that had great quality, but with a true focusing optical finder, like the sd1200es. It has great quality, fits in my shirt pocket, and allows me to compose and shoot with the camera against my forehead, in my opinion, the ONLY way to make great pictures. The Canon sd1200 was well worth the wait. 05/05/2009
    Rated 5 out of 5★áby Love It As a senior citizen, I find the camera just what I wanted. It is easy to operate, takes a great picture and I love it. My 9 year old grandson also enjoys taking pictures with it. He has shown me a lot of features I didn't know about.Great investment for me! 11/09/2009
