14 Reasons Against

Not Good in Terms of Size

4 Other reasons to consider the Ricoh WG-4 GPS

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when Ricoh released the WG-4 GPS.

Average Screen Size

With a screen size of 3 inches, the WG-4 GPS has a pretty typical screen size compared to most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that are a similar age to the WG-4 GPS.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 3" screen digital cameras currently available including the Canon PowerShot D20[plb_1609521_price], or the Olympus OM-D E-M5[plb_1684827_price] which has better reviews; or the Olympus Stylus Tough TG-830[plb_1721140_price] which is cheaper.

This camera supports an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory card, which is the most frequently supported memory card on digital cameras that have been around for a comparable time to it. SD cards are by far the most common type of memory card. They are compatible with the majority of digital cameras.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative digital cameras that support an SD|SDHC|SDXC memory currently available including a cheaper camera such as the Stylus Tough TG-830[pl_1721140_price], or the Stylus Tough TG-830[pl_1721140_price] both from Olympus or you might consider a higher scoring camera such as the PowerShot D20[pl_1609521_price], or the PowerShot D20[pl_1609521_price] both from Canon.

If the memory card type of this camera is too bad for you then you might want to look at the Olympus OM-D E-M5[plb_1684827_price] (Eye-Fi|SD|SDHC|SDXC and higher rated).

Average Optical Zoom

The WG-4 GPS has a fairly standard optical zoom (4 times zoom factor) compared to most of the other cameras of this age and spec.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 4x optical zoom cameras and we think cheaper digital cameras such as the Pentax Optio WG-3[plb_1993993_price], and the Ricoh WG-4[plb_2173526_price] is also worth considering.
