As well as being compared against other super zooms, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V is also often compared to travel zooms, entry-level DSLRs and pro digicams. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX200V's top rivals come from Panasonic (such as the Lumix DC-FZ80 (Lumix DC-FZ82) and the Lumix DMC-FZ200) and Sony (such as the Cyber-Shot DSC-HX300 and the Cyber-shot DSC-HX90V)

compared toSuper zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Sony DSC-HX200V compared to other super zoom competitors include: it has a significantly higher resolution screen (921k dots vs 460k dots), has better image stabilization (lens vs sensor shift), has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD), has a built-in GPS and has a faster max shutter speed (1/4000 of a second vs 1/2000 of a second).

However, on average it has a significantly narrower wide angle lens (24 mm vs 20 mm), doesn't have a screen which flips out, has a significantly shorter battery life (450 shots vs 540 shots), is older (february 2012 vs february 2015) and doesn't support an external flash.
