As well as being compared against other ultra compacts, the Sony CyberShot DSC-W800 is also often compared to travel zooms, super zooms, compacts and digicams. The Sony CyberShot DSC-W800's top rivals come from Canon (such as the PowerShot ELPH 180 and the PowerShot ELPH 190 IS) and Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-W830 and the Cybershot DSC-W650)

compared toUltra compact competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Sony DSC-W800 compared to other ultra compact competitors include: it has a slightly wider wide angle lens (26 mm vs 28 mm), is newer (february 2014 vs february 2011) and is significantly less expensive ($88.00 vs $569.48).

However, on average it has a slightly lower resolution screen (230k dots vs 1,229k dots), has a CCD-family sensor (CCD vs CMOS), doesn't have an OLED screen (LCD vs OLED) and is thicker (2.1" vs 0.6").
