In this review, we will be comparing XP90 and TG-5, two Waterproof cameras from Fujifilm and Olympus. Fujifilm XP90 was introduced to market in January 2016 and Olympus TG-5 was launched in May 2017. There is 16 months difference between XP90 and TG-5 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger TG-5, especially in sensor tech.
Both cameras have 1/2.3" sensors but Fujifilm XP90 has a 16.0 MP and Olympus TG-5 has a 12.0 MP resolution. We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Waterproof cameras. Out of 75 cameras in this class, Fujifilm XP90 is ranked #6
with an overall score of 53 and Olympus TG-5 is ranked #2
with an overall score of 61.
