5% higher megapixel count Edit
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS is a 16.79MP digital camera. That's 0.79MP higher than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (16.79MP). 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.

Higher maximum waterproof depth Edit
Ricoh WG-4 GPS is 14m waterproof, but the Nikon Coolpix S7000 is only a unknownm waterproof digital camera (14m lower). Read more

This is the maximum depth that the manufacturer recommends taking the camera underwater.

A higher the maximum underwater depth allow you to use the camera for scuba diving as well as snorkelling.

The Ricoh WG-4 GPS is a -10°C maximum freezeproof temperature digital camera. That's 10°C lower than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (-10°C).
7.2x bigger digital zoom Edit
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS is a 7.2x digital zoom digital camera. That's 7.2x bigger than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (7.2x). 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.

Smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS is an 18.5 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 18.5 smaller than the Nikon Coolpix S7000 (18.5).
