As well as being compared against other travel zooms, the Samsung WB750 is also often compared to entry-level DSLRs, digicams, super zooms and compacts. The Samsung WB750's top rivals come from Canon (such as the EOS Rebel T5 and the PowerShot A640) and Olympus (such as the SZ10)

compared toTravel zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Samsung WB750 compared to other travel zoom competitors include: it has a slightly wider wide angle lens (24 mm vs 28 mm), has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD) and is newer (september 2011 vs february 2011).

However, on average it doesn't have a built-in GPS, doesn't have a touch screen, has a slightly shorter battery life (220 shots vs 300 shots) and slightly shorter exposures (16 seconds vs 30 seconds).
