As well as being compared against other super zooms, the Casio Exilim EX-FH20 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, travel zooms and compacts. The Casio Exilim EX-FH20's top rivals come from Casio (such as the Exilim EX-FH25 and the Exilim EX-FC150) and Olympus (such as the SP-800 UZ)

compared toSuper zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Casio EX-FH20 compared to other super zoom competitors include: it has better image stabilization (sensor shift vs none), has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD), has higher quality type of viewfinder (digital vs none) and significantly longer exposures (60 seconds vs 8 seconds).

However, on average it has a slightly lower resolution screen (230k dots vs 460k dots), is older (september 2008 vs february 2011) and doesn't support an external flash.
