As well as being compared against other waterproofs, the Fujifilm FinePix XP150 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs and travel zooms. The Fujifilm FinePix XP150's top rivals come from Fujifilm (such as the FinePix XP50 and the FinePix XP100) and Sony (such as the Cybershot TX10 and the CyberShot DSC-H300)

compared toWaterproof competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Fujifilm XP150 compared to other waterproof competitors include: it has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD), has a slightly longer battery life (300 shots vs 220 shots), has a built-in GPS and has a faster max shutter speed (1/2000 of a second vs 1/1600 of a second).

However, on average it is slightly larger (compact (103×71×27 mm) vs ultra compact (96×56×18 mm)), doesn't have a touch screen, doesn't shoot as fast continuously (3 fps vs 10 fps), lacks a built-in HDR feature and lacks built-in panoramas.
