Olympus Stylus Tough 6010 with Pentax WG-3 GPS Overview


Let's compare Pentax WG-3 GPS with Olympus Stylus Tough 6010. These models are included in the Waterproof cameras. Pentax WG-3 GPS was released in 2013, and Olympus 6010 in 2009. WG-3 GPS is newer, which is a plus. Stylus Tough 6010 4 years older. 4 years, this is a pretty big age difference.
The sensor resolution of WG-3 GPS is greater than that of Stylus Tough 6010. However, the difference of 4 MP is not very significant. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
At the first camera (WG-3 GPS), the minimum ISO value is lower, which gives more opportunities for shooting in daylight. A larger maximum ISO allows you to take good pictures in the dark. At Pentax WG-3 GPS, the maximum ISO is greater by 4800. Both cameras have Sensor-shift image stabilization. Pentax WG-3 GPS has a larger 3-inch Fixed screen, the other camera has a 2-inch Fixed screen.
