As well as being compared against other travel zooms, the Canon PowerShot ELPH 360 HS is also often compared to pro digicams, ultra compacts, super zooms and compacts. The Canon PowerShot ELPH 360 HS's top rivals come from Canon (such as the PowerShot ELPH 520 HS and the PowerShot G9 X Mark II) and Ricoh (such as the Theta S)

compared toTravel zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon PowerShot ELPH 360 HS compared to other travel zoom competitors include: it records higher quality movies (1080p @ 30fps vs 720p @ 25fps), has a slightly larger screen (3" vs 2.7"), has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD) and is newer (january 2016 vs january 2015).

However, on average it doesn't have a built-in GPS, doesn't record high-speed movies (none vs 240 fps), doesn't record movies in 24p, has a slightly shorter battery life (180 shots vs 250 shots) and has a slower max shutter speed (1/2000 of a second vs 1/4000 of a second).
