Reasons For

5 Reasons For
Bigger optical zoom Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9800 is a 50xx optical zoom digital camera. That's 46x bigger than the Ricoh WG-4 GPS (4xx). Read more

The optical zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in to the subject using the camera's lens system. An optical zoom is superior to a digital zoom because the zoom is achieved using the optics of lens which means that the full extent of the digital sensor is always used to capture the image.

A larger optical zoom allows you to zoom in on the subject without having to move closer. Compared to a digital zoom, using an optical zoom does not result in a loss of image quality.

Shorter minimum focal length Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9800 is a 24mmmm minimum focal length digital camera. That's 1mm shorter than the Ricoh WG-4 GPS (25mmmm).
Smaller minimum ISO speed Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9800 is a 100 minimum ISO speed digital camera. That's 25 smaller than the Ricoh WG-4 GPS (125).
50% longer maximum camera shutter speed Edit
Fujifilm FinePix S9800 is 8ss maximum shutter speed. That's 4s longer than the Ricoh WG-4 GPS (4ss). Read more

The maximum time which the camera shutter is open when taking a photo.

Four supported batteries Edit
The Fujifilm FinePix S9800 is a four supported battery digital camera, whereas the Ricoh WG-4 GPS only has one supported battery.
8 Reasons For
Higher megapixel count Edit
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS is a 16.79MPMP digital camera. That's 0.59MP higher than the Fujifilm FinePix S9800 (16.79MPMP). Read more

The resolution of the images a digital camera produces is measured in megapixels (MP). One megapixel is equal to 1 million pixels and is a result of the pixel width multiplied by the pixel height of the image. While a higher image resolution generally results in sharper images, only a relatively low megapixel count is required when printing the image at a small size or to display it on a computer screen.

A sensor with more megapixels will be able to capture more detailed photos and the image will appear sharper. Images with more megapixels can also be printed at a larger size.

73% bigger digital zoom Edit
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS is a 7.2xx digital zoom digital camera. That's 5.2x bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix S9800 (7.2xx). Read more

The digital zoom of a camera is a measure of how much the camera can zoom in by cropping the image received by the camera's sensor. A digital zoom is not as good as an optical zoom as it will result in a reduction in image quality the further you zoom in. This is because fewer of the camera's pixels are being used to capture the image.

A digital zoom allows you to enlarge the subject but this can result in the image becoming blurry. A digital zoom can be used if an optical zoom is not available.

Smaller maximum aperture Edit
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS is an 18.5 maximum aperture digital camera. That's 12 smaller than the Fujifilm FinePix S9800 (18.5).
A lot smaller minimum aperture Edit
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS has a minimum aperture of 2, however the Fujifilm FinePix S9800 is a 2.9 minimum aperture digital camera (0.9 larger).
99mm longer maximum focal length Edit
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS has a maximum focal length of 100mmmm, but the Fujifilm FinePix S9800 is only a 1,200mmmm maximum focal length digital camera (99mm shorter).
Bigger internal memory Edit
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS is a 70MBMB internal memory digital camera. That's 32MB bigger than the Fujifilm FinePix S9800 (70MBMB).
Lighter Edit
The Ricoh WG-4 GPS has a weight of 216gg, but the Fujifilm FinePix S9800 is a 577gg digital camera (361g heavier). Read more

The camera's weight will depend on the type and size of camera. Compact cameras are usually the lightest while digital SLRs will be heavier. Also consider the number and weight of lenses to take when using a SLR.

The lower the camera weight, the easier it will be to carry around and it will also reduce your hand luggage weight when flying.

A little better user reviews
The average user review score of the Ricoh WG-4 GPS is 83%, however the average rating of the Fujifilm FinePix S9800 is 82% (based on 18 reviews).
