In this review, we will be comparing TG-5 and XP130, two Waterproof cameras from Olympus and Fujifilm. Olympus TG-5 was introduced to market in May 2017 and Fujifilm XP130 was launched in January 2018. There is 16 months difference between TG-5 and XP130 so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger XP130, especially in sensor tech.
Both cameras have 1/2.3" sensors but Olympus TG-5 has a 12.0 MP and Fujifilm XP130 has a 16.0 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, Olympus TG-5 is ranked #2
with an overall score of 61 and Fujifilm XP130 is ranked #5
with an overall score of 54.
