Excellent Camera at a excellent bargain

First of all thanks to the flipkart team for delivering the product on time, which was less than 48 hours. Booked the camera on April 20th late evening and received it on April 22nd. I had been researching a lot on DSLRs for a long time and the price offered by flipkart was the best one in the market. None of the competitors in the market were offering at this price. Anyone who wishes to buy this camera can do their bit of research too for the prices but I will strongly recommend FLIPKART. I had checked it in Canon company store, Vijay Sales, Croma and few local shops.
Features of the product remain the same wherever you buy it from, what matters is the after sales service which I am yet to test it which I feel now, will be offered by Canon now.
For the canon team a simple advice/ feedback....the bag offered with the DSLR looks very cheap for a product offered at Rs.34000. I am big fan of the canon products but every time Canon has offered cheap bags with the cameras. Request you to rectify it.
Don't be worried for Warranty, all works well.

I am not going to write on the camera cons & pros, most of you know these, I'm writing about the Warranty issue, first i was also in a fix, there is NO issues in registering the product, I REGISTERED my product (EOS 1200D) successfully & also received 2yrs of Warranty, Yes the product was made in Taiwan, but no issue of Warranty coverage.
For the camera serial number printed on your invoice you have to remove 2 numbers from beginning & then register your product. If you don't remove it will show an invalid serial number message to you.
Go Ahead & purchase this product, don't WORRY for WARRANTY.

I have always been fascinated with good photographs and have ever since college, wanted a DSLR that would do justice to the moment I am having the opportunity to indulge in.
EOS 1200D does exactly that; I am new to photography and have tried out several manual tweaks; results are stunning life like reproductions of the view; the intelligent auto mode will click pictures like the photographer were a professional.
Best part is the dual lens combo: 18-55 & 55-250; selective focus, intelligent background blur, great full auto, finish and speed. Perfect.
Only minor improvement possible on the deal is the bag and memory card. Bag is a bit small and memory card could have more storage; but both of these can be easily fixed by buying new bag and memory card; the bag however does fit my camera body, both lenses, data cable, and charger.
Long story short, if you love great cameras and have a desire to capture life like moments, EOS 1200D is the machine you need. Buy it now.

Had ordered Canon 1200d a few days back, but unfortunately had to cancel the order because of arrogant, lousy, rude and uncooperative delivery staff. If this is what they call world class customer service then treat this as my last order to flipkart.

I was in debate with some friends that should i buy 600D or 1200D. Obviously 600D had an edge over the 1200D and is better. But discussing more they even agreed this a great camera at this price with an additional lens!
I loved it! I am using it! Its great, gives me a control over my shots and the results are excellent!
For users who wanna kno NIKON Vs Canon thing! Obv Nikon is a bit better trust me! But it is not that user friendly compared to Canon! Also a major issue with Nikon is you cannot see the difference in LCD when u change ur aperture, ISO and Shutter Speed which can be seen in Canon hand in hand!
So it might be possbile with Nikon u take great clicks but it comes out to be darker or over exposed in ur laptop screen! Nikon needs more of practice!
Thank you flipkart!

This product was delivered on time in a perfect condition . I am loving the camera and canon provides a free training course for those who newly purchased camera. tis course is definitely worth.
Camera has fantastic exposure, shutter, and clarity.
definitely good for amateur photographers.
Excellent Deal, Smart Photography...

Bought this kit from a local retailer after extensive searching over the web for a reasonably priced Entry Level DSLR not compromised in terms for features. The listings in Flipkart.com helped a lot. I'm a Flipkart lover, but being a student, I was unwilling to invest my hard saved bucks in something which is to be delivered after 3-4days (I live in Kolkata suburb), haha, I'm too impatient maybe, I had many other choices but could not resist this as it is a dual kit and further, comparatively less costly lenses as upgrades than Nikon, or Sony...
Ok, my first DSLR, this camera is excellent, lightweight enough and powerful. Has an APS-C sensor which is closely packed with 18 million light sensor pixels, more than excellent for an Entry Level, this enables the shots being rendered low in noise and grains under low light conditions or while using higher ISO.
The 18-55mm IS II lens is though very slow (or maybe stupid) while in AF mode, so I almost always tend to use MF, this is not seen in the 55-250mm IS II, in fact the later is quite fast in AF registration, and equally smart in MF mode.
The camera body has a good grip and feel unlike its predecessor, EOS 1100D which is kept by a friend of mine, which has more plastic feel. The EOS 1200D feels rubberized at the grips which is fantastic, it also has better control and switch placements than the previous.
Still, no in-body image stabilization is a considerable drawback, Sony, Pentax are miles ahead than Canon and Nikon in this context.
One point, I'm using this for almost a week, but still could not found where are the RAW and/or RAW+JPEG shooting modes hidden, well, I can refer to the manual, but, I think I should find it by myself, isn't it funny?
If you plan to use old lenses using lens mount to EF-S adapters, this camera is a good choice as different modes, like Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority mode are quite easy to use, intelligent camera indeed for amateurs.
Accessories provided are sufficient, the battery is quite capable in delivering 500+ shots in use after fully charged, USB cable, the Strap is good, free 8GB SD Card, CDs and manuals...
Inference: Go ahead without hesitation, it'll amaze you, believe me. Never the less, there are other better models targeted at pro-s, still, this one is too good, maybe best and smartest as an Entry Level DSLR for amateurs and also for semi pro-s...

Not much value addition over its predecessor EOS 1100d which one can get at 20k. Only difference I found so far is Mega-Pixel, which i don't value at all, anything above 8MP is ok, if you don't print very large hard copies of your photo.
Many features like spot metering, tilt-LCD(though not all weather friendly), wifi/bluetooth/infrared should have been there. It feels like these features are deliberately dropped to keep it an entry level model.
Giving only 2 star, as i found it highly overpriced. The current price should have included 55-250mm lens.
excellent cam for starters
by Anmol on 2014-09-15
i was planning to buy 600d for 31k but then u see this amazing camera for only 22k with only difference as rotating screen, screen resolution and 3 shots per second compared to 3.8.
the picture quality is crisp and user controls are easy and friendly.

I was confused between Nikon 5200d, 3300d and canon 1200d. After going through a lot of research I realize that d5200 is the best of the lot and costed me about 26k with that 18-55mm lens.
A friend told that it's actually the lens that works in a DSLR , not the body and suggested me to go with canon which was coming with a 55-250mm lens.
And now think this is the most wise decision I had took in my life.
The camera is just awesome with the 55-250mm lens that brings a smile on my face.
* the 55-250 lens is just brilliant . covers a wide zooming range and blurs the background. Seriously speaking the 18-55mm lens is of no use to me after having this.
* the camera really takes good images and you would not be left to desire more.
* the battery life is just awesome. I took about 350 shots a day and the battery was still full.
* the built in camera flash is best for night portraits. It has a wide coverage.
As of now no problem
The product should have been checked as I the camera was already "used"
by Amazon Customer on 2016-03-09
The camera is good but when I received the camera. It already had photos clicked of a girl and a hotel room which was squire disappointing as I didn't paid for a used item
by Boss on 2014-10-28
I am into photography for 17 years now and this is my third SLR camera. I was a bit surprised with the number of 5 stars this camera is getting and was wondering if this really deserves this.
Simply put, the Canon 1200d is to dSLR what a Tata nano is to cars. There are the BMWs, Audis and the Swifts, but only cost does not give this a Five stars!
Most of the 5 stars are from 1st time SLR users who are in the so called honey moon period. I am not saying this camera is bad, but this is being over hyped here.
Remember, this camera has its limitations due to its low cost build. There are so many point and shoot cameras at the 12K range that have better build, resolution, zoom, aperture, display screen, good glass lens, panel and what not? Most of the features in dSLR are things which you would NEVER use and that’s the reason I am saying please get a camera for your requirement and not just because you are getting a cheap dSLR.
Do not sell your Harley Davison to buy a Tata Nano. This is a doctor’s prescription, what works for me may not work for you. I am just trying to be sensible here.
My two cents to all proud owners –
1. Canon has given you a wonderful lens. Do not spoil it with a UV filter. Most filters sold are just glass pieces that do more harm than good to the photos.
2. Try to put the cam on Manual focus. Half click as you focus till you get the beep. It takes time to learn but this will give you sensational pics and also will save the battery and the lens. Remember lens can get damaged if it is in AF and you try to focus manually.
3. Never change the lens in a dusty place. Invisible dust can enter the cam and can cause blurring in picture.
Canon Support Issue! -PRAMIT

First, check if you are registering the right way.
Visit edge.canon.co.in. Get a user account by registering your details. Sign-in. Click on "Register Your Product" button. Follow the instructions displayed. During this registration process, keep a soft-copy of the Invoice, and your camera/lens' serial numbers (these numbers are printed on the outer-right side panel of sealed box along with bar codes). The Camera body, 18-55 lens, 55-250 lens have unique serial numbers for each of them. All these three are to be registered one after the other. Typically the camera body serial number will have more digits than the lens. Let's use a hypothetical example, say these are the numbers found on the box: (11)123456789012, (22)1234567890, (33)0987654321. The first one should be of the Camera body and the other two are of the Lenses. When registering, omit the content within parantheses and use the remaining part. Going by the same example considered above, you should use 123456789012 to register the camera body, and so on.
If the above still fails:
There is an option to raise an "Escalation" from Canon Edge India product registration web page itself. Basically, it's our opportunity to tell Canon India that a camera with the Serial Number is bought in India, on a specific date.
Canon India immediately issues an Escalation Tracking ID on our e-mail.
Internally, Canon India validates how the camera with the specific serial number came into India, whether it was a legal import by Canon India Pvt Ltd., or not, whether it's a brand new camera/used one elsewhere, etc., and they will inform the final status back to us on our e-mail ID. Assuming it is all genuine and Canon processed the escalation in our favor, product in our hand can be registered to avail warranty and other benefits.
In case there is no response within, say, 5 to 10 working days:
Carry the camera along with lenses, the box and the Invoice to your nearest Canon Service Center. They will be able to do a manual inspection & advise your options.
A very powerful tool for those learning photography and enthusiasts alike
by Manish Bhoola on 2014-11-25
A remarkable first camera for any DSLR / Photography enthusiast. The coupled offer of the second lens makes this a clear winner over the Nikon D3300 even if it sports features which may be better or advanced compared to this one, however its not just about the immediate camera needs which you should consider.
1) You are buying a very capable photography system. If you want to learn photography do it the hard traditional way keeping out all the bells and whistles of high end models. The only difference between this and other high end models from canon would be the number of clicks per second, or the number of AF points and other features which will actually distract a learner. Even if basic this model offers no less picture / image quality over other higher end APS-C cameras from Cannon or Nikon. There is zero compromise in this area. Many skills you need to acquire such as use in manual mode, HDR photography, understanding depth of field, learning light metering modes, studying histograms, raw image post processing are well learned on this basic model without any hindrances or limitations in features. This is very important for you to know.
2) once you are done with the initial kit lens you will want to invest in other lenses which will add so much more flexibility to this camera. This will bring out the true power of a canon DSLR as the lens system you invest in will continue to be usable in higher and advanced bodies you invest in the future. As you learn the art, adding a 50mm prime, a fast tele photo lens will prove its value of investing in a Canon system
3) If you intend to use it just casually for better photographs over standard point and shoot camera then again anything else in higher models should not interest you as the image quality / auto features of this and all higher end ASPS-C DSLR cameras up to 7D will be the same. Investing more money in a camera with more features for use in auto mode will not be of any use, so why spend more ?
4) The software which comes along with it is quite capable and there is a tutorial on youtube to learn its use. Make use of it to enhance your images.
5) Get Corel Paintshop Pro X7 at a great price. Don't despair over professional photographs looking grand due to photoshop, For amateurs, Corel comes up neck to neck for most tasks.
Just go for this model, invest in some other essential lenses and cultivate the hobby ! Good luck
A great buy for beginners
by Shahbaz Ahmed on 2015-03-03
A great camera at entry level for beginners. And with 14% discount on it (when i bought), i didn't give it a second thought. What matters more in photography is ones own creativity and a camera is just a tool that allows you to achieve it. So i'd recommend Canon 1200D to all those who are willing to buy a DSLR. Attached are 2 pics that i've clicked with it. So you can compare the image quality.
keep calm and click with Canon 1200d

by Amazon Customer on 2015-10-22
Thanks amazon for the best deal for my dream camera. Bought it for 21,499. No other e- commerce website can beat ur price and quality of service. A must buy camera for a beginner in photography..Loved the Auto intelegent scene mode. Attaching some of the best clicks of mine.
This is a good camera with user friendly settings for the beginner
by Nimon Chakma on 2016-02-05
This is a good camera with user friendly settings for the beginner. I loved the quality of its photos. The Nikon D3200 is a better alternative which has 11 focus points and features a 24.2 MP sensor. However, the Nikon will cost you around 20000 with a VR lens. I chose this camera because I was getting a dual lens combo for 24500 only. Otherwise the Canon is also a great brand. The Megapixel count does not matter in our day to day lives.
by ARNAB GHOSH on 2016-04-24
This is the best entry level DSLR. Within this price we are getting 2 lenses. 18-55mm & 55-250mm.
Build quality is too good. Image quality is excellent. Battery backup is up to the mark.
I am very much satisfied with this product
by Abc on 2016-10-11
Ordered this product on 4th Oct, 2016, I am very lucky to get this product for 20k.
I am very much satisfied with this product.
I would advice people who are interested in buying this product to take dual lens combo.
The quality of pictures taken from 55-250mm IS lens is amazing.
I have seen in many reviews where people have said the carry bag was not good, but I felt the bag is good.
This camera is very good for beginners.

Canon EOS 1200D 18MP Digital SLR Camera (Black) with 18-55mm and 55-250mm IS II Lens product is very nice. The picture quality of this Canon EOS 1200D is very nice and fine. Handling, feature set and performance all are very fine.I have always been fascinated with good photographs and have ever since college, wanted a DSLR that would do justice to the moment I am having the opportunity to indulge in.
EOS 1200D does exactly that; I am new to photography and have tried out several manual tweaks; results are stunning life like reproductions of the view; the intelligent auto mode will click pictures like the photographer were a professional. It's a good product.good quality. I thought canon eos 1200d slr better for me becoz of quality.
