Reasons For

10 Reasons For
2x bigger digital zoom Edit
The Canon PowerShot G16 has a digital zoom of 4x, whereas the Fujifilm XP90 is only a 2x digital zoom digital camera (2x smaller). 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.

The Canon PowerShot G16 is a 1.8 minimum aperture digital camera. That's 2.1 smaller than the Fujifilm XP90 (3.9).

6 Reasons For
27% higher megapixel Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 is a 16.4MP digital camera. That's 4.3MP higher than the Canon PowerShot G16 (16.4MP). 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.

More total megapixels Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 is a 16.76MP digital camera. That's 3.96MP more than the Canon PowerShot G16 (16.76MP).
65% smaller maximum aperture number Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 is an 8 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 5.2 smaller than the Canon PowerShot G16 (8).
Hugely lighter Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 has a weight of 186g, but the Canon PowerShot G16 is a 314g digital camera (128g 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.
