Olympus Tough TG-2 iHS with Pentax WG-3 GPS Overview


Let's compare Pentax WG-3 GPS with Olympus Tough TG-2 iHS. These models are included in the Waterproof cameras. Both of these models were released in 2013. This means that differences will go a long way. Let's take a closer look.
The sensor resolution of WG-3 GPS is greater than that of Tough TG-2 iHS. 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. Both cameras have Sensor-shift image stabilization. Both cameras feature a 3-inch fixed screen.
Pentax WG-3 GPS has 5.0 fps continuous shooting.
