Reasons For

8 Reasons For
0.4MP higher megapixel count Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 has a megapixel count of 16.4MP, however the Olympus Stylus SH-2 is only a 16MP digital camera (0.4MP lower). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

25 smaller minimum ISO speed Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 has a minimum ISO speed of 100, whereas the Olympus Stylus SH-2 is a 125 minimum ISO speed digital camera (25 bigger).
59MB bigger internal memory Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 has an internal memory of 96MB, however the Olympus Stylus SH-2 is only a 37MB internal memory digital camera (59MB smaller).
460,000 pixels higher display resolution Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 has a display resolution of 920,000 pixels, whereas the Olympus Stylus SH-2 is only a 460,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (460,000 pixels lower).
46% lighter Edit

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

Vastly thinner Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 has a depth of 27.8mm, however the Olympus Stylus SH-2 is a 42.4mm deep digital camera (14.6mm thicker).
£96 cheaper

13 Reasons For
More total megapixel count Edit
The Olympus Stylus SH-2 is a 16.8MP digital camera. That's 0.039999999999999MP more than the Fujifilm XP90 (16.8MP).
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Olympus Stylus SH-2 is a 24x optical zoom digital camera. That's 19x bigger than the Fujifilm XP90 (24x). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

50% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Olympus Stylus SH-2 is a 4x digital zoom digital camera. That's 2x bigger than the Fujifilm XP90 (4x). Read more

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.
