Preview:
(previews are based on camera specifications only, and do not include personal hands-on whatsoever).

As the demand for budget digital cameras keeps going up, so does the supply. All companies offer a large variety of models to choose from, with slight differences in features and prices.

The A1200 is situated between the basic A800 (compare ), which offers a smaller zoom and no HD video, and the A2200 (compare ), whose body is slimmer and more stylish than that of the A1200.

Compared to the Nikon budget friendly range, the A1200 takes the basic L24 (compare ) with a knock out, but looks up to the S3100 (compare ).

However, the A1200 has a key advantage over every other model in this category. It has an optical viewfinder. Some may disregard this fact, but other will cherish it, as it is a dying breed. The only other 'compact' cameras offering viewfinders today are the high end Canon PowerShot G12 and the Nikon Coolpix P7000, which cost roughly 4 times more than the A1200.

The A1200 is a simple camera, with not many pretensions. As such, it has all the basic needs a camera should provide.
