Canon EOS 1200D (EOS Rebel T5) Review


Canon EOS 1200D (EOS Rebel T5) Review - Verdict

While the Canon EOS 1200D isn't exactly going to dazzle in terms of its specification, it has a lot going for it when you consider its launch price of just under £350 without the kit lens.

Compared to some competing models such as the Nikon D3300 and the Pentax K-50, the Canon 1200D's specification is somewhat underwhelming

However, it's worth noting that where the camera excels is in the keys areas - its AF speed and accuracy are good, even in low light conditions, while the performance at higher ISO settings is certainly in keeping with many similar cameras, if not better.

So while it would be nicer to have a higher burst speed and more AF points, these are arguably more important to the advance photographer and as such the 1200D will no doubt prove more than capable for the beginner DSLR photographer.
