3.7MP higher megapixel Edit
The Sony DSC-H300 has a megapixel of 20.1MP, whereas the Fujifilm XP90 is only a 16.4MP digital camera (3.7MP 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.

Significantly bigger optical zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-H300 has an optical zoom of 35x, whereas the Fujifilm XP90 is only a 5x optical zoom digital camera (30x smaller). 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.

30% smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Sony DSC-H300 has a minimum aperture number of 3. That's 0.9 smaller than the Fujifilm XP90 (3).
Longer maximum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
Sony DSC-H300 is 954mm maximum focal length. That's 814mm longer than the Fujifilm XP90 (954mm).
Marginally shorter minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) Edit
The Sony DSC-H300 has a minimum focal length (35mm film equiv) of 27.2mm, however the Fujifilm XP90 is a 28mm minimum focal length digital camera (0.8mm longer).
Smaller ISO sensitivity (min) Edit
Sony DSC-H300 is 80 minimum ISO speed, but the Fujifilm XP90 is a 100 minimum ISO speed digital camera (20 bigger).
