). I've bought from Ebuyer before (my first SLR in fact) and never had a problem.
Size-wise, the SX120 is (officially) 111x71x45mm. To put that into context, the Fuji F80 EXR (which is a more traditional compact size and shape) is 99x59x28mm. It's probably worth drawing that out (as it's almost meaningless any other way). The SX120 isn't huge really, it's just a bit bigger than most "compacts"...
WRT to bags, it's personal preference. The 3 most well known bag manfacturers are Kata, Crunpler and Lowepro. All 3 are good (I like Kata and Crumpler the most - Kata are generally regarded as the toughest, Crumpler as the most stylish). I would probably go for something like the
Kata DP 415
. It's tough and well sealed - a real bonus in dusty areas. Morris Photo have one for about Â£14 (
Would I still recommend it over anything else for Â£140? Probably - there still isn't much else with the same spec. Just remember that you're going to end up shelling for a camera, bag and a memory card (at the very least). Say Â£140 for the camera, Â£15 for the case and a tenner for a 4GB SDHC card and thats Â£165... It's still a pretty good deal - just be aware that you need more than the camera and case!
Ah ok well it seems like I found it cheaper here anyway:
So now only Â£130 with Camera and 4GB Memory Card. Add a case for Â£15 and thats Â£145 overall for everything? Good deal? Also will 4GB be enough for 3weeks or should I get another memory card too? Battery wise as well should I buy a load of cheap AA batterys as then I don't have to worry about finding somewhere to charge them in India? Also sorry to keep asking questions but will the Kata DP-415 Digital Pouch defintley fit this camera? I just can't seem to find it saying any specific model's on the site.
