The Fujifilm FinePix S8350 is mostly gets compared to super zooms, travel zooms and compacts. The Fujifilm FinePix S8350's top rivals come from Fujifilm (such as the FinePix S8600 and the FinePix S4800) and Nikon (such as the Coolpix L830 and the Coolpix S60)

Competitor classes

compared toSuper zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Fujifilm S8350 compared to super zoom competitors include: it has better image stabilization (lens vs sensor shift), slightly higher maximum light sensitivity (12,800 ISO vs 3,200 ISO), has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD) and has higher quality type of viewfinder (digital vs none).

However, on average it has a significantly shorter battery life (300 shots vs 500 shots).
