Hi,

I'm a newbie to digital cameras and at the moment amazon are offereing
a good deal on both the Pentax Optio 33L & 33LF models (btw I live in
the UK).

Could anyone tell me what the differences between them are? (in terms
that I can understand!)

Is it just that one model is replacing the other (if so - which is
which?) or are there other factors, that as a newbie, I ought to be
aware of before making a choice?

Thanks in advance,

Try this. Good descriptions and not bad prices.

The Pentax website describes the Optio 33L here:

http://www.pentaxusa.com/products/cameras/camera_overvi...

and the Optio 33LF here:

http://www.pentaxusa.com/products/cameras/camera_overvi...

When I tried to use the 'comparison' option (by selecting 33L and 33LF
in that order) it listed the 33L specs but not the 33L ones (just put
"n/a" all over the place).

Any help please?

Thanks for the link Gymmy!

I don't seem to have made much progress however. I clicked on the 'Up
to 3.9 Megapixel Cameras' link, then on 'Pentax', but all it listed
was the Optio 30 which is yet another model!

Can anyone help please?

John

Sorry, I was getting confused with another post I was involved with.
You are correct.
