WG-3 is the more intriguing release in that it is an original product and comes packed with a whole load of new features. It includes a 16-megapixel, 1/2.3-inch BSI CMOS sensor as well as a 3-inch LCD which lets you get a good view of the shot images. Moreover, you also get to shoot 1080/30p or 720/60p videos.
