As well as being compared against other compacts, the Sony Cybershot DSC-WX7 is also often compared to travel zooms, ultra compacts and pro digicams. The Sony Cybershot DSC-WX7's top rivals come from Sony (such as the Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 and the Cyber-shot DSC-W710) and Nikon (such as the Coolpix S8200 and the Coolpix P7700)

compared toCompact competitors

Generally, some of the advantages of the Sony WX7 compared to other compact competitors include: it has a much wider wide angle lens (25 mm vs 35 mm), has a significantly higher resolution screen (921k dots vs 230k dots), is significantly smaller (super compact (95×56×20 mm) vs compact (94×59×27 mm)), shoots faster continuously (10 fps vs 1.9 fps) and has a CMOS-family sensor (CMOS vs CCD).

However, on average it doesn't have a viewfinder (none vs tunnel), has a slower max shutter speed (1/1600 of a second vs 1/2000 of a second) and slightly shorter exposures (2 seconds vs 15 seconds).
