The WG-4 and WG-4 GPS offer outstanding waterproof performance - down to 45 feet underwater-and shock resistance against a fall from heights up to 6.5 feet. While inheriting the easy-to-hold, non-slip design of the previous lineup, they provide a choice of new body colors that stand out in the outdoors. They also feature such state-of-the-art developments as a large-aperture, four-times optical zoom lens (with the maximum aperture of F2.0 at the wide-angle end) and a high-sensitivity, back-illuminated CMOS image sensor to deliver high-quality, low-noise images - even in the water, at night and at indoor sports events where the subject is poorly illuminated. Other significant improvements have been made to upgrade the camera's operation and performance, including faster AF operation in macro shooting, improved image quality in underwater shooting, and the addition of the USER mode for instant recall of the user's favorite settings. An array of optional accessories are available to accommodate active outdoor photography. For instance, an adhesive mount and a handlebar mount are designed to securely fix the camera for hands-free shooting, allowing the photographer to take advantage of such movie recording features as a dual shake reduction system and Full HD movie recording (1920 x 1080 pixels).

It does not seem to get the colors right under auto mode when shooting under room tungsten lights. But this can be corrected in program mode.
It has all of the traditional features of the WG line of cameras. Probably the toughest camera out there.
I've read where this WG-4 was priced higher then previous WG cameras. But this has the GPS function and seems to be priced much cheaper then the previous WG cameras with GPS. It was roughly $100 cheaper then my WG-2 which also had GPS.
Waterproof, good lens coating (easy to wipe off river water, it seems to repel fog and dirt), a lot of manual control compared to cheaper point-and-shoots, optical zoom, better than a cellphone quality.
Proprietary charging cable, no lens cap (come on guys, this one is obvious, there's a way to clip on a macro stand but no cap?), no screen protector (more of a third party problem, I can't find any available and my screen got pretty scratched on the first outing, dragged across the sand by a wave), no manual control over the macro lights. In macro, manual focus is essential. Because so little is in focus you need to be able to choose exactly what's in focus, and that means manual control. In macro mode there is no manual focus, and in manual focus mode, there are no macro lights. I have to use my flashlight like on any other camera, making the macro lights useless to me.
GPS burns through batteries. I don't know if any camera with GPS doesn't have this problem, so it's more of an observation than a complaint. I'm leaving it off for future use.
