As well as being compared against other waterproofs and compacts, the Panasonic Lumix FT25 is also often compared to ultra compacts, travel zooms and digicams. The Panasonic Lumix FT25's top rivals come from Nikon (such as the Coolpix S33 and the Coolpix W100) and Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-TX30 and the Cybershot W510)

compared toWaterproof competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Panasonic FT25 compared to other waterproof competitors include: it has a significantly wider wide angle lens (25 mm vs 28 mm), has better image stabilization (lens vs sensor shift) and significantly longer exposures (60 seconds vs 8 seconds).

However, on average it has a slightly narrower aperture (f/3.9 vs f/3.5), has a slightly lower resolution screen (230k dots vs 460k dots), has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS), doesn't have an OLED screen (LCD vs OLED) and is older (january 2013 vs january 2015).
