As well as being compared against other waterproofs and compacts, the Nikon Coolpix S33 is also often compared to digicams, travel zooms and super zooms. The Nikon Coolpix S33's top rivals come from Nikon (such as the Coolpix A10 and the Coolpix W100) and Panasonic (such as the Lumix TS25 and the Lumix DMC-TS10)

compared toWaterproof competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Nikon S33 compared to other waterproof competitors include: it has a built-in flash, has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD), is newer (february 2015 vs january 2013), is slightly less expensive ($149.98 vs $356.02) and has a faster max shutter speed (1/2000 of a second vs 1/1500 of a second).

However, on average it has a much narrower wide angle lens (30 mm vs 25 mm), has worse image stabilization (digital vs lens), takes slightly lower resolution photos (5.7 MP vs 9.6 MP), has a slightly shorter battery life (220 shots vs 300 shots) and doesn't have a built-in GPS.
