As well as being compared against other waterproofs and compacts, the Olympus Tough TG-810 is also often compared to travel zooms. The Olympus Tough TG-810's top rivals come from Nikon (such as the Coolpix AW100) and Olympus (such as the Stylus Tough 6020 and the Stylus 850 SW)

compared toWaterproof competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Olympus TG-810 compared to other waterproof competitors include: it has a slightly wider wide angle lens (28 mm vs 38 mm), has a slightly larger screen (3" vs 2.7"), has a significantly higher resolution screen (920k dots vs 230k dots), has better image stabilization (DigitalSensor shift vs digital) and is newer (march 2011 vs february 2010).

However, on average it has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS), is slightly heavier (221 g vs 167 g) and slightly shorter exposures (4 seconds vs 60 seconds).
