As well as being compared against other travel zooms, the Fujifilm FinePix JZ700 is also often compared to pro digicams, super zooms and compacts. The Fujifilm FinePix JZ700's top rivals come from Casio (such as the QV-4000) and Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-W830 and the Cyber-shot DSC-W810)

compared toTravel zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Fujifilm JZ700 compared to other travel zoom competitors include: it shoots faster continuously (8 fps vs 1 fps), has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD) and has a faster max shutter speed (1/2000 of a second vs 1/1600 of a second).

However, on average it is older (april 2013 vs january 2014).
