The Fujifilm FinePix S8350 is mostly gets compared to super zooms, entry-level DSLRs and travel zooms. The Fujifilm FinePix S8350's top rivals come from Fujifilm (such as the FinePix S8600 and the FinePix S9200) and Canon (such as the PowerShot SX530 HS and the PowerShot SX410 IS)

compared toSuper zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Fujifilm S8350 compared to super zoom competitors include: it has a slightly wider aperture (f/2.9 vs f/3.4), has better image stabilization (lens vs sensor shift), slightly higher maximum light sensitivity (12,800 ISO vs 1,600 ISO), has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD) and has a viewfinder (digital vs none).

However, on average it has a significantly narrower wide angle lens (24 mm vs 4 mm), has a significantly shorter battery life (300 shots vs 500 shots), users slower contrast detection autofocus (contrast detection vs phase detection) and is older (july 2013 vs january 2015).
