"Snapsort recommends the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS20. This recommendation, however, should be taken with a grain of salt since it doesn't always make sense to compare a travel zoom with a digicam."

Panasonic ZS20 and Samsung WB850F are both travel zoom cameras (i.e., high zoom lens in a compact body)
