After owning the HS11 , i would purchase the HS33  over the HS22  simply beause a) its newer hence it will be an advancement over the HS22  & b) the rechargeable battery , I use AA lithiums in my HS11 and while they are good for 400-600 shots , if you cant get them , Alkaline AAs last maybe 80-100  shots , a friend has a Canon 60D , it takes over 1,000 shots on a battery charge ,but then it cost 6 times the price of my HS11 (with an extra lense)and certainly not worth 6 times more...............
