It's Your Choice: LCD or Optical Viewfinder.
The PowerShot A1200 digital camera gives you a choice that's getting
increasingly hard to find on digital cameras today. It's equipped with an
Optical Viewfinder in addition to the LCD screen. Many photographers prefer this
classic, familiar option that lets you simply hold the camera to your eye and
shoot. The camera's big, bright LCD screen gives you a wealth of important
information about the shot. However, using it to compose and focus requires that
you hold the camera away from your body. Many people do this with one hand, arms
away from the body, effectively creating camera shake that can distort a shot.
Using the Optical Viewfinder helps ensure that the camera is held steady. The
great thing is that from shot to shot, whether you use the Optical Viewfinder or
LCD screen is your choice.
Just set the Canon PowerShot A1200 digital camera to Smart AUTO and you're
ready for maximum enjoyment from your picture-taking every time. It's a relaxing
and satisfying way to shoot because you can completely concentrate on your
subject knowing that the camera has the technical details covered. Advanced
Canon technology intelligently analyzes your situation and shooting conditions.
Then it automatically selects an appropriate setting from 32 specially defined
settings. So whether you're photographing flowers, a captivating sunset, or your
friends at the park, you can be confident that you're getting dramatic,

Shoot without Distractions.
How many times have you found yourself in a situation where you wanted to
take a picture, but were reluctant (or simply not allowed) to disrupt the
setting with noise or flash? New Discreet Mode makes picture-taking possible in
museums, at performances, anywhere light and sound would not be welcome. Simply
turn the mode dial to Discreet, and the camera's sound, flash and AF assist beam
will be disabled - without changing any other settings. If the camera senses low
light, ISO speed will be automatically raised to get the best possible shot. You
can even switch to playback mode to review still images or video, and the camera
will remain muted.
Photographic Artistry That's Easy for Anyone.
Creative Filters Mode gives you lots of fun, easy ways to make your
photography more creative. The camera does all the work - you simply choose an
effect and shoot! Fisheye Effect imparts a fun, familiar curvilinear distortion
to your image that's ideal for kids and pets. Miniature Effect plays with
perspective, giving any shot the look of a world created in much smaller
proportions - great for landscapes and city shots. When you shoot in Toy Camera
Effect, you get the vintage effect of a first-generation camera, ideal for
giving portraits a slightly distorted, unevenly saturated look of a picture
you'd come across in your attic. Monochrome lends a moody beauty to your
photography, producing shots in Black & White, Sepia or Blue. Super Vivid
saturates colors to heighten the intensity and impact of any shot. Poster Effect
takes away transitions between objects in the frame to give your image the
high-impact look of a hand-painted poster.

The PowerShot A1200 digital camera has a large 2.7-inch LCD screen that gives
you the big picture, whether you're shooting, reviewing or showing off your
images. This high-resolution screen offers a crisp, clear and bright picture. It
