LCD and Viewfinder
Fujifilm XP90 has a Fixed Type 3″ LCD screen with a resolution of 920k dots. Both the screen size and the screen resolution is up to the standards of this class.
XP90 doesn't have a viewfinder and no option for external viewfinder. Lack of a viewfinder can be problematic especially under strong light where visibility of LCD screens goes down dramatically. If you need a Compact camera with a built-in viewfinder in a similar price range, consider Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H50 (Compare) or Canon PowerShot SD780 IS (Digital IXUS 100 IS) (Compare). If the price is not an issue, take a look at our Top Rated Cameras with Viewfinders.
Max Shutter speed
Fujifilm XP90 can shoot continuously at max speed of 10.0 fps and has max shutter speed of 1/2000 sec.
Unfortunately XP90 doesn't have an external flash shoe so you are limited with the built-in flash.
Fujifilm XP90 features a Contrast Detection autofocusing system.
Fujifilm XP90 also features Face detection AF
where it intelligently detects the faces in the frame and locks the focus automatically.
With Fujifilm XP90, you can record your videos at a highest resolution of 1920 x 1080 at 60p,30p fps and save in MPEG-4 and H.264 formats. Full HD resolution of Fujifilm XP90 will be adequate in most of the situations. But if you are after the highest resolution videos available, see our list of Top Cameras with 4K (Ultra-HD) Video.
XP90 has a built-in Mono microphone and a Mono speaker.
Fujifilm XP90 doesn't have any connections for external microphones and headphones. If you need a Compact camera with external microphone connectivity, consider Samsung PL120 or Samsung SH100 in a similar price range.
Connectivity and Storage
Fujifilm XP90 features built-in wireless (Wi-Fi) connectivity ( 802.11/b/g/n) which lets you transfer your photos directly to compatible devices without any physical connection.One other feature that we like is the ability to use our smartphone as a remote to control our XP90. You can change camera settings, release shutter, view LCD screen and tranfer files using remote control app.
You can connect XP90 to compatible devices via its HDMI port or USB 2.0 (480 Mbit/sec) port.
Battery Fujifilm XP90 is powered by NP-45S battery which provides a shooting life of 210 according to CIPA standards.
Considering that the average battery life of Compact type cameras is 253 shots, Fujifilm XP90 has a short battery life for its class so we strongly recommend XP90 owners to buy some extra batteries.

Olympus TG-4 with its 380shots is the model with longest battery life among Waterproof cameras. Check the comparison of Fujifilm XP90 vs Olympus TG-4 or take a look at Longest Battery Life Compact cameras list.
