A1200 for $35
« on: December 29, 2012, 10:26:26 AM »

Just ordered a little Powershot A1200 from the refurb store. At $35, how can you go wrong? Sale ends today.

The OVF is what got me. That, and the simplicity, I guess. Throw in a couple of AA batteries, paste it to your face and go shooting.

No RAW, no IS of any kind. But an f/2.8 28mm zooms to f/5.9 at 112mm.

And if it gets run over by a bus, no big deal (just get it off your face before the bus comes!).

Yes, its a good deal.
 Canon is dumping a lot of the older models trying to reduce inventory and bring in a little money.  They typically do this every year, but cuts seem deeper this year since P&S sales are really poor.
