Canon EOS 1200D review – The competition
The Canon EOS 1200D will face strong competition from one of its own stablemates. With a street price of £350 including an 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 kit lens, the EOS 100D is a great camera for those looking for a entry-level DSLR. An 18-million-pixel CMOS sensor is featured inside the EOS 100D, and it is smaller, lighter, has a 1.04-million-dot touchscreen LCD as well as 4fps compared with the 3fps and 460,000-dot screen of the EOS 1200D.
Nikon’s answer to the EOS 1200D is the D3300. This camera has a 24.2-million-pixel sensor compared with the 18 million pixels of the Canon. The D3300 also has 11 AF points compared to the Canon’s nine, but the Nikon comes at the higher price of around £499 body only.
