From the Manufacturer

It’s Your Choice: LCD or Optical Viewfinder.

it’s Your Choice: LCD or Optical Viewfinder. An Optical Viewfinder makes capturing images simple and easy.
The Powers hot 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. Smart AUTO

Shoot without Distractions. New scene mode: Discreet Mode disables the sound, flash and AF beam so you can still capture images in quiet areas.
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 offers fun and artistic ways to capture photos.
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 and White, Sepia or Blue. Super Vivid saturates colours 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.
