As well as being compared against other travel zooms, the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS is also often compared to super zooms, pro digicams and compacts. The Canon PowerShot SX620 HS's top rivals come from Canon (such as the PowerShot SX740 HS and the PowerShot SX730 HS) and Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-WX350 and the Cyber-shot DSC-HX350)

compared toTravel zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS compared to other travel zoom competitors include: it has a slightly higher resolution screen (922k dots vs 460k dots), has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD), has a slightly longer battery life (295 shots vs 250 shots) and is newer (may 2016 vs january 2015).

However, on average it has a significantly narrower wide angle lens (25 mm vs 4 mm), doesn't shoot as fast continuously (2.5 fps vs 10 fps), doesn't have a screen which flips out, doesn't have a viewfinder (none vs digital) and doesn't support an external flash.
