Canon EOS 1200D sensor review 2019


While Canon has regularly updated the upper entry-level EOS XXXD (Rebel TXi) models, the manufacturer has only periodically upgraded its entry-level models.

 The resulting 18-Mpix EOS 1200D (Rebel T5) is an upgrade to the 12-Mpix EOS 1100D (Rebel T3) that was introduced back in 2011.

The EOS 1200D (Rebel T5) also features the latest more capable Digic 5 rather than the older generation Digic 4 level image processors, with the adoption of the high-resolution sensors found in the manufacturer's past and present EOS XXXD (Rebel TXi) models.

 Nonetheless, this means that the camera adds a 'cinematic' 24fps frame rate for full HD 1080p video recording of 30/25 fps from earlier models and gets a new extended maximum ISO sensitivity option equal to ISO12,800.

 The old maximum ISO 6,400 is the same, the highest setting used for the Auto ISO option and movie mode.

While the headline news is the adoption of the 18-Mpix sensor, other improvements are actually minor compared to its predecessor.

 It gets a larger 460k-dot 3.0 "rear LCD (above 230k dot, 2.7"), and it also adopts the firm's new menu layout, along with five new filter effects, but this upgrade is clearly priced. Is intended to keep it competitive.

 The resulting Canon EOS 1200D (Rebel T5) is one of the most accessible priced DSLRs and is available at $ 549, including the EF-S 18-55mm IS II f3.5-5.6 Kit Zoom.

Canon EOS 1200D: Performs well for current Canon 18-Mpix sensor

A score of 63 points with DxOMark, the 18-Mpix CMOS sensor is slightly underestimated due to its somewhat weak performance.

 It ranks 135th overall in our sensor performance database and 111th with APS-C size sensors, slightly ahead of models such as the Canon EOS 700D (Rebel T5i) with a DxOMark score of 61 points.

The color depth at 21.9 bits is somewhat behind the best of current entry-level models, as is the 11.3 eV dynamic range and a low light score of 724 ISO. Although to be fair, those models are more expensive than the moderately priced Canon.

The Canon EOS 1200D (Rebel T5) is 135th overall, but is a strong contender for the intended market.

Canon EOS 1200 D vs Nikon D 3300 vs Sony SLT Alpha 58: Outshone by similar entry-level rivals

Compared to the main rivals of this model, especially the Nikon D3300 but also the Sony SLT Alpha 58, EOS 1200D (Rebel T5) results are not particularly close.

 Looking at individual scores, the Nikon sensor has a +1.66 stop gain in color and a 1.5 stop wide dynamic range, yet as an 'entry-level' Nikon model,

RAW files are 12-bit only compressed as opposed to Canon's 14-bit Huh. Production. Nikon has an additional 1-stop advantage even in low light capability.

Even older technology Sony sensors can boast higher pixel counts, 1.0 stop improvement in color and 1.33 stops wider dynamic range.

While Canon is still targeting compact-growing users, the Nikon D3300 is aimed at some more user demand, someone willing to pay a little extra for a 24-Mpix CMOS, 11-point AF System Aid. 5fps is the burst rate.

The same applies to the A58, although with the 20-Mpix sensor and plastic mount, Sony is more budget conscious.All three so-called entry-level models appeal to slightly different users with different aspirations.

Vs Canon EOS Rebel T3 Canon EOS 1200D, vs Canon EOS 1000D EOS 1100D, Digital Rebel XS or Kiss F: No harmful effect on performance, despite increased pixel count

Compared to its predecessors, the upgraded EOS 1200D (Rebel T5) has only a slight increase in DxOMark scores.

Although, at first sight, it may seem disappointing with no improvement in performance over the years, this is not strictly true as the pixel count on the EOS 1100D has increased by 50 percent.

 If the image size is increased by about 21%, and seems to be promising with respect to detail rendering,

 if previous lens test results with the Canon-related 18-MPPix sensor are anything to go by. Although the color depth is not low, Canon has managed to improve dynamic range by +0.3 EVs and maintain low light capability.

Canon EOS 1200D sensor The conclusion

Nobody seems to think that Canon will push the boundaries with its entry-level model, disappointed with this DxOMark sensor score,

 but it's worth remembering the sensor and imaging series, and not at the same level as the more expensive rival options .

 Canon would like to see a better model beyond Canon's range, but anyone moving beyond the compact knows about the performance of the sensor and the practicality of such a DSLR that it jumps ahead.
