Olympus Stylus Tough TG-630 iHS vs Fujifilm FinePix F500EXR
Top Eleven Reasons for the
Olympus Stylus Tough TG-630 iHS
Compared to Fujifilm FinePix F500EXR
48 g lighter
Measurably better video recording quality
1080 x 60 fps
1080 x 30 fps
2x better video recording quality
A little higher pixel density
2.15% higher pixel density
Is dustproof and water resistant
Dustproof / water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1m.
Plenty less body volume
40.66% less body volume
Slightly higher resolution
0.16% higher resolution
Has built-in optical image stabilization
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect vibrations of the camera. The lens and / or sensor move in response, adjusting the optical path. This ensures that any motion is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
Has a HDMI output
Devices with a HDMI or mini HDMI port can transfer high definition video and audio to a display.
5.10 mm shorter
10.70 mm thinner

Top 14 Reasons for the
Fujifilm FinePix F500EXR
Compared to Olympus Stylus Tough TG-630 iHS
Substantially more megapixels (photo)
33.33% more megapixels (photo)
Vastly larger sensor
4.8 x 6.4 mm
4.55 x 6.17 mm
9.43% larger sensor. The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
Notably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
2.40x faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
Notably higher maximum light sensitivity
2x higher maximum light sensitivity. With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
Has a stereo microphone
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
A bit more battery power
8.11% more battery power
Has a built-in HDR mode
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
Significantly greater zoom range
10 x greater zoom range. The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.
6.70 mm narrower
Sizably longer exposure time
4 s longer exposure time. When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
Clearly longer maximum focal length
220 mm longer maximum focal length. A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
Significantly shorter minimum focal length
4 mm shorter minimum focal length. A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
