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.
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 Â£5 at places like 7 Day Shop.
It has a 3month Warrenty and claims its "Factory Refurbished to New". I'm really not sure what to do now as the SX200 is a better camera yet the cheapest I can get it is for Â£170 without case.
Also the SX200 is " REFURBISHED TO NEW BY CANON. BRAND NEW CONDITION.".
In relation to batterys as well might the SX120 be better as I can just take some AA's with me and not worry about having to charge it? Though the SX200 is more "pocket-freindly"
Please help me decide
I'm so bad with things like this.
Plus just to add to this massive indescion if I were to chose the more expensive option maybe go for:
instead as is £10 cheaper than the SX200 and are quite identical in features/reviews?
