New entry-level DSLR has its own mobile app to help you get started with your new camera

Canon has today pulled the wraps off its latest DSLR, the EOS 1200D, and announced the release of a companion app for Android and iOS to help folks get started with using it. The 1200D is the latest entry-level DSLR from Canon, which will come in at an attractive price point of £349.99 (body only) when it goes on sale in March. 

With the companion app, Canon is offering quick start guides, tutorials and troubleshooting guides to help you get the best from your camera. Having stuff built in to the camera is OK, but it makes complete sense to start moving such information onto the thing in your pocket. 

The companion app is available to download now from the Play Store at the link above. So if you're lining up a new 1200D next month you've got a little time to take a look around first.

Cannon is still around? I thought they went out of business years ago.

You're thinking of Kodak? (Who I think still kind of exists)

Wow...try one of the largest pro-photography equipment manufacturers around.

I am disappointed that this app doesn't control the camera like 3rd party apps can...they even support my ancient 1000D. Can't install on over 6 phones I have linked to my account either...

The app is incompatible with all my devices. Really? Incompatible with my Nexus 5? WTH is it compatible with?

I wish Dslr's weren't so expensive. :(
