The sensor resolution of WG-4 GPS is greater than that of G700SE. 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-4 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 Ricoh WG-4 GPS, the maximum ISO is greater by 3200. WG-4 GPS has image stabilization(Sensor-shift), G700SE doesn’t, it is a big minus. Both cameras feature a 3-inch fixed screen.
