As well as being compared against other digicams, the Fujifilm FinePix S8350 is also often compared to super zooms, entry-level DSLRs, travel zooms, pro digicams and compacts. The Fujifilm FinePix S8350's top rivals come from Nikon (such as the Coolpix L840 and the Coolpix P510) and Fujifilm (such as the FinePix S8200 and the FinePix S8300)

compared toDigicam competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Fujifilm S8350 compared to other digicam competitors include: it has a slightly wider aperture (f/2.9 vs f/3.3), has significantly more zoom (42x vs 14x), significantly higher maximum light sensitivity (12,800 ISO vs 3,200 ISO), has in-camera HDR and creates panoramas in-camera.

However, on average it lacks and external mic jack, has a slightly shorter battery life (300 shots vs 400 shots), doesn't have a built-in GPS, doesn't support an external flash and has a slower max shutter speed (1/1700 of a second vs 1/3200 of a second).
