Canon has today pulled the wraps off its latest entry-level DSLR camera, the EOS 1200D, and along with it a companion mobile app to help you find your way around it. The 1200D – like the 1100D before it – is aimed at those taking their first steps into DSLR photography, and the app will be available to folks with an iOS or Android device.
Some of the same content is available on the actual camera, but it makes absolute sense to pull those tips, tricks and troubleshooting guides out and put them in your pocket. The camera will ship in March at £349.99 (body only), but the app should be available prior to that for interested buyers to take a look. Indeed, the Android version has already hit the Google Play Store.
As a less than camera-savvy person myself, I like what Canon did with this. How about you?
That EOS 1200D is the new Rebel T5, and I'm excited about it. I've been waiting for their new product announcements for some time, and have been wavering on going with either a high-end PowerShot or an entry-level Rebel. This T5 is very enticing, especially at an MSRP of $549. A little miffed that it has the older DIGIC 4 processor, though. Having that iPad app along with it would be great. If, before the end of the CP+ show in Japan, they announce a replacement to the PowerShot SX50 HS with a larger sensor than the current 1/2.3 CMOS for $400-500, then I'm really gonna be in a quandary.
