Design

1.Has a flip-out screen
Ricoh WG-6
Flip-out screens can be useful for tricky shots.
2.Has a built-in focus motor
Ricoh WG-6
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
3.weight

246g

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.has an optical viewfinder
Ricoh WG-6
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens will capture. OVFs have no time lag and require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders, which can drain battery life. OVFs are also better in low light situations.
5.Has a hot shoe
Ricoh WG-6
A hot shoe can be used to attach an external flash, as well as light meters, viewfinders, rangefinders and other attachments.
6.screen resolution

1040k dots

A higher screen resolution provides a sharper image, making it easier to review your photos.

Optics

1.sensor size

6.17 x 4.55mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
2.focus points

9

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
3.megapixels (main camera)

20MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.
4.maximum light sensitivity

6400 ISO

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.
5.has AF tracking
Ricoh WG-6
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
6.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Ricoh WG-6
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.

Videography

1.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos
Ricoh WG-6
A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.
2.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Ricoh WG-6
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
3.Has timelapse function
Ricoh WG-6
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
4.has a 24p cinema mode
Ricoh WG-6
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.
5.supports slow-motion video recording
Ricoh WG-6
Slow-motion is an artistic video effect that makes time seem to go slower. It is achieved by recording a video at a higher frame-rate than the standard playback rate of 24fps or 30fps. Frame rates for slow-motion videos vary between 60fps and 960fps.
6.supports AVCHD format
Ricoh WG-6
AVCHD (Advanced Video Coding High Definition) is a file-based format for the digital recording and playback of high-definition video. It's a standard popular among professional cameras and camcorders.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Ricoh WG-6
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Ricoh WG-6
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
3.has a socket for a 3.5 mm audio jack
Ricoh WG-6
With a standard mini jack socket, you can use the device with most headphones.
4.Has a zoom microphone
Ricoh WG-6
Zoom microphones record high-quality audio and enable you to record sound from a distance. They can be useful for recording meetings, lectures, and presentations.
5.has stereo speakers
Ricoh WG-6
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Battery

1.Battery life (CIPA)

340shots
