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).

One of the best compact, underwater cameras on the market at the moment. Would rank image quality right up there with the Nikon AW1 at half the price. If you are in dire need of an underwater camera then this is a great choice, however if you are just looking for a good point-and-shoot then look elsewhere.
> The image quality is decent for the size and price (obviously don't expect DSLR like quality and clarity from a point-and-shoot camera).
> Plenty of image shooting modes (really, almost too many when you are trying to find a specific one in a hurry)
> Worked underwater every time without any issues
> Large aperture allows for somewhat decent low light shooting
- Accessories: there are some good ones (macro ring light), but they are expensive little add-ons that are easy to misplace
- IS is hit or miss
- Lots of manual functions for the more advanced shooter, but the menu system is cluttered and hard to navigate
< Slow to focus (I ended up missing a lot of shots because the camera couldn't focus fast enough and manual focus is just way to cumbersome to be practical).
< I wasn't impressed with the underwater images (slow focusing, poor contrast, over saturated) - for every 50 I took I maybe got one or two that were even usable
The camera worked properly for as long as the excursion lasted ... and when I say that I mean literally that , it lasted exactly three snorkeling
excursions where I planned to take the pictures of the colorful fish, corals and reefs, luckily I could at least snap those beautiful pictures, but the fourth time I dived underwater with it, it stopped working , water entered the battery compartment so it bursted and spilled acid which dissolved one of the battery contacts, which in turn caused that the SD card got semi dissolved , thank God the day
before I had backed up the pictures of the last tour.
In short: The camera worked well while it lasted, it takes great quality pictures both outdoors
and under water, but it is not waterproof (at least not for long enough)
