Here we are comparing two cameras with different body types: Pentax WG-3, which was introduced in July 2013 is a Waterproof camera with a 16.0MP 1/2.3-inch sensor whereas Canon G16, which was introduced in November 2013 is a Small Sensor Compact camera with a 12.0MP 1/1.7-inch sensor. There is only 4 months difference between WG-3 and G16 so we are expecting this to be a fair comparison regarding age and technology level.
Fortunately, you can't go wrong with any of these cameras as we rank them amongst Top 10 cameras in their classes. Pentax WG-3 is ranked #9
out of 76 Waterproof cameras with an overall score of 50 whereas Canon G16 is ranked #3
out of 262 Small Sensor Compact cameras with an overall score of 61.
Here is a brief look at the main features of Pentax WG-3 and Canon G16 before getting into our more detailed comparison.
