Reasons For

6 Reasons For
3% higher megapixel Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 is a 16.4MP digital camera. That's 0.4MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix S6900 (16MP). 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.

1.4 smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 is an 8 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 1.4 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix S6900 (6.6).
69% bigger internal memory Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 is a 96MB internal memory digital camera. That's 66MB bigger than the Nikon Coolpix S6900 (30MB).
50% higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
Fujifilm XP90 is 920,000 pixels display resolution. That's 460,000 pixels higher than the Nikon Coolpix S6900 (460,000 pixels).
210.00 battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The number of battery life (CIPA standard) on the Fujifilm XP90 is 210.00, but the Nikon Coolpix S6900 only takes 190.00 battery life (CIPA standard). Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Better user reviews
Based on 82 user reviews, the average review score of the Fujifilm XP90 is 84%, however the average rating of the Nikon Coolpix S6900 is 77% (based on 33 reviews).
7 Reasons For
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S6900 is a 12x optical zoom digital camera. That's 7x bigger than the Fujifilm XP90 (12x). 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 Nikon Coolpix S6900 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.

19% smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S6900 has a minimum aperture number of 3.3, however the Fujifilm XP90 is a 3.9 minimum aperture digital camera (0.6 larger).
160mm longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
Nikon Coolpix S6900 is 300mm maximum focal length, but the Fujifilm XP90 is only a 140mm maximum focal length digital camera (160mm shorter).
12% shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S6900 has a minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 25mm. That's 3mm shorter than the Fujifilm XP90 (25mm).
Vari-angle LCD display Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S6900 has a vari-angle LCD display, whereas the Fujifilm XP90 does not have a vari-angle LCD display.
5g lighter Edit
The Nikon Coolpix S6900 has a weight of 181g, but the Fujifilm XP90 is a 186g digital camera (5g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

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