The Canon SD1200 was a typically excellent SD-series shooter from Canon, light on flashy specs but strong on image quality and performance. It was one of the last compact cameras to sport an optical viewfinder (though Canon has since brought that feature back on one new model) and was exceptionally popular throughout 2009. Alas, its time has passed, and has since been replaced. We'll miss this camera.
