As well as being compared against other travel zooms, the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830 is also often compared to waterproofs, ultra compacts, compacts and digicams. The Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830's top rivals come from Nikon (such as the Coolpix W300 and the Coolpix A300) and Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-WX220 and the Cyber-shot DSC-W810)

compared toTravel zoom competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Sony DSC-W830 compared to other travel zoom competitors include: it is much smaller (super compact (93×52×23 mm) vs compact (97×57×28 mm)), is thinner (0.9" vs 1.1"), is slightly lighter (122 g vs 180 g) and has a faster max shutter speed (1/1600 of a second vs 4 seconds).

However, on average it doesn't have a built-in GPS, has a significantly smaller screen (2.7" vs 3"), has a slightly lower resolution screen (115k dots vs 921k dots), doesn't shoot as fast continuously (1 fps vs 10 fps) and has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS).
