As well as being compared against other compacts, the Kodak Slice is also often compared to travel zooms and entry-level DSLRs. The Kodak Slice's top rivals come from Nikon (such as the Coolpix S6000 and the D3200) and Kodak (such as the EasyShare M580)

compared toCompact competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Kodak Slice compared to other compact competitors include: it has a much larger screen (3.5" vs 2.7"), is slightly smaller (super compact (104×60×17 mm) vs compact (97×55×25 mm)), has a touch screen and is thinner (0.7" vs 1").

However, on average it has a slightly narrower aperture (f/4.8 vs f/3.7), records lower quality movies (848 x 480 @ 30fps vs 720p @ 30fps) and has a much narrower wide angle lens (35 mm vs 28 mm).
