ThE SELL: The biggest still sensor (16 megapixels) for the money. THE TEST: Megapixels alone don’t make great images, but this camera is also paired with extra-sharp glass. Though it captures clear photos, the WG-2 GPS could use simpler menus, and despite a five-foot fall rating, the screen cracked when we dropped it from a kitchen counter. THE VERDICT: Drop-test results notwithstanding, this is the bargain of the bunch.
