I want to buy a optio wr. But i don't know wich one ? :?

In france , there is about 150 Euro betwwen these two camera:

o the 33wr is about 250 Euro

o the 43 is about 400 Euro

Is the important différent of price (about 30% more) justify the improvements between 33vr and 43 wr (except fro the différence of resolution, 3 MPixel matches my need) ?

Whare are the major improvments of 43 wr ?

Owners of 33 and 43 wr,are you really feel more "confortable" (quality of images, speed, ergonmy) upgrading with the 43 ?

Is the 43 autofocus faster ?

Does the 33 spend less the battery than the 33wr ?

Thank you by advance.

Hi Matthieu

I have a 43WR and, although I have no personal experience with the 33WR, on paper at least, the 43WR is superior. The 43WR has 4MP instead of 3MP, 640 x 480 video at 30fps instead of 320 x 240 at 15fps and it surely should perform at least the same in all other ways.

I have both and while I don't feel the boost from 3.2MP to 4MP justifies the 43WR's greater cost I *do* really like the 43WR's 640x480x30fps movie mode! (High speed memory needed to get 30fps). If you don't need the greater resolution and/or the superior movie mode then stick w/the 33WR. Hope this helps...
