As well as being compared against other waterproofs and compacts, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS30 is also often compared to travel zooms, digicams and ultra compacts. The Panasonic Lumix DMC-TS30's top rivals come from Fujifilm (such as the FinePix XP120 and the XP90) and Panasonic (such as the Lumix DMC-TS6 and the Lumix TS4)

compared toWaterproof competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Panasonic DMC-TS30 compared to other waterproof competitors include: it has better image stabilization (lens vs none) and is newer (january 2015 vs january 2013).

However, on average it has a slightly narrower aperture (f/3.9 vs f/3.3), has a slightly narrower wide angle lens (25 mm vs 5 mm), has a slightly lower resolution screen (230k dots vs 460k dots), doesn't shoot as fast continuously (1.3 fps vs 30 fps) and has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS).
