Reasons For

2 Reasons For
32g lighter Edit
The Fujifilm XP90 is a 186g digital camera. That's 32g lighter than the Sony DSC-HX90 (218g). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

$295 cheaper
The Fujifilm XP90 costs $132.55, whereas the Sony DSC-HX90 is $428.00.
8 Reasons For
Slightly higher megapixel Edit
The Sony DSC-HX90 has a megapixel of 18.2MP, whereas the Fujifilm XP90 is only a 16.4MP digital camera (1.8MP 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-HX90 has an optical zoom of 30x, whereas the Fujifilm XP90 is only a 5x optical zoom digital camera (25x 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.

118x bigger digital zoom Edit
The Sony DSC-HX90 has a digital zoom of 120x, however the Fujifilm XP90 is only a 2x digital zoom digital camera (118x smaller). Read more

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

12% smaller minimum aperture number Edit
The Sony DSC-HX90 has a minimum aperture number of 3.5. That's 0.4 smaller than the Fujifilm XP90 (3.5).
A bit higher display resolution (numeric) Edit
Sony DSC-HX90 is 921,600 pixels display resolution, but the Fujifilm XP90 is only a 920,000 pixels display resolution digital camera (1,600 pixels lower).
One hundred and eighty more battery life (CIPA standard) Edit
The number of battery life (CIPA standard) on the Sony DSC-HX90 is 390.00, but the Fujifilm XP90 only takes 210.00 battery life (CIPA standard). Read more

The number of shots per battery charge is the number of photos that the camera will typically take on a single charge of the battery.

More shots per battery charge means you will have to recharge the battery less frequently and reduces the need to carry a second back up battery.

Available from 3 shops
A greater number of stores increases the chances of this digital camera remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
User reviews are moderately better
The Sony DSC-HX90 has an average user review score of 88% based on 148 reviews, however the Fujifilm XP90 has an average rating of 84% (based on 82 reviews).
