We continue with digital camera week on Gadget Pr0n, taking a look at this offering from the people at Canon, the Canon SD 1200.
Look below the cut for the written review from Attack of the Show.
What You Need to Know
- It's almost exactly the same dimensions as its predecessor, the SD1100, but it's a little lighter
- They didn't make the screen any larger at 2.5"
- We don't mind the directional pad and buttons, but it might be time for a touch screen
- They have the Smart-Auto setting, which picks what kind of scene you're shooting and adjust settings accordingly, but it ends up auto-focusing a lot and blurring pictures
- They also have the face-detection self-timer, which waits for a face to enter frame and snaps a picture
- It's definitely useful, but it might not handle a lot of faces well
- Normal light pictures still look incredible; colors are vibrant and there's hardly any noise
- These are, again, some of the best pictures we've seen from a point and shoot
- Low light also looks great, but pictures blur easily in smart auto mode; some of the best image stabilization we've seen was in the SD1100, but this one just wasn't as solid
- The image quality alone makes this a worthwhile purchase
