In this review, we will be comparing XQ2 and TG-870, two Ultracompact cameras from Fujifilm and Olympus. Fujifilm XQ2 was introduced to market in January 2015 and Olympus TG-870 was launched in January 2016. There is 12 months difference between XQ2 and TG-870 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-870, especially in sensor tech.
We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Ultracompact cameras. Out of 152 cameras in this class, Fujifilm XQ2 is ranked #1
with an overall score of 52 and Olympus TG-870 is ranked #3
with an overall score of 49.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Fujifilm XQ2 and Olympus TG-870 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
Let's read on the following sections in order to better understand in detail how Fujifilm XQ2 and Olympus TG-870 compares and hopefully end up with enough arguments to decide which one is better for you.
