Ricoh WG-4

17 Reasons why Ricoh WG-4 is better

than the average

230gvs 376g (the average)
vs 65.5g (best: HTC Re)
2.Has a stereo microphone
Yesvs No (53% don't have it)
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
3.More battery power
1500mAhvs 1212mAh (the average)
vs 4360mAh (best: Samsung Galaxy NX Mirrorless)
64mmvs 97mm (the average)
vs 39mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V)
5.Distinctly less body volume
262cm³vs 531cm³ (the average)
vs 65.29cm³ (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
6.Is dustproof and water resistant
Yesvs No (91% don't have it)
Dustproof / water resistant at depth equal to or greater than 1m.
33mmvs 51mm (the average)
vs 13mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
8.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
9.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
10.A bit bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
11.Has sensor shift stabilization
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.
12.Weather sealed
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
Device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures due to any kind of weather.
13.Has a BSI sensor
Yesvs No (81% don't have it)
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
14.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
15.Sizably wider aperture at minimum focal length
2vs 3 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
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.
16.Noticeably shorter minimum focal length
25mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
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.
17.Has a compass
Yesvs No (98% don't have it)
A compass is useful in games, map and navigation software.
