The sensor resolution of WG-5 GPS is greater than that of Tough TG-6. 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-5 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 Olympus TG-6, the maximum ISO is greater by 6400. Both cameras have Sensor-shift image stabilization. Both cameras feature a 3-inch fixed screen.
Burst mode, also called continuous shooting mode, sports mode or continuous high speed mode, is a shooting mode in still cameras. Ricoh WG-5 GPS has 20.0 fps continuous shooting. Ricoh WG-5 GPS has 20.0 fps continuous shooting.
