Canon PowerShot A1200 12.1MP Digital Camera with 4x Optical Zoom, 2.7" LCD, Smart AUTO
I have taken a few photos with the Canon A1200 now. The camera is everthing and more than what I expected. Its very easy to use and set up, all the settings have an explanation what they do. Its very easy to use. It's a nice size to hang on to, takes great photos! If you are looking for a budget camera that grandma could use and get briallant results then this is the camera for you.
The LCD is a good size, the view finder is small but quite useable, I tried it a couple times but prefer the LCD, personal preference. Love the fish eye function makes your face look very funny and has a silent mode where it makes no beep, clicks or pops when taking photos.
On feature I like is that when set to auto if you go close to something it will go to macro mode so you never have to adjust anything! Blur free closeups.
For an under $80USD camera its got a lot of bang for buck! You won't go wrong for the money!
