You must have caught me in mid reply!
There are a couple of things to watch our for here. Firstly, with eBay and cameras - if they're UK stock then maybe. If they come from Hong Kong, China etc I would avoid them. SLR lenses have a worldwide warranty, cameras and SLR camera bodies don't. They're region specific.
This looks like a UK seller which means you should be OK on that front.
The other thing to take into consideration is that these are refurbished cameras. The electronics industry doesn't have a standard definition for what "refurbished" means. Only you can make that call. It might be worth looking into what sort of warranty these cameras have, just in case.
It's a good price for the SX200 though. The SX200 belongs to a range of compact "superzooms" which are excellent cameras but normally out of your price range.
If it was me (and I could afford it) I'd have the SX200 - I genuinely would. It's better specified, smaller and better built than the SX120. It's more money though, and you'd still need a case.

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.
Yes, that's a good deal. I picked the DP-415 based on the bag chooser on the Kata site (I told it I wanted cases that would fit the SX120 IS specifically) so it
A 4GB card should hold about 1,000 photos from a 12MP camera. That's an estimate as each photo will be different. Cards are cheap though, you can pick them up from less than £5 at places like 7 Day Shop.
