Assuming you were asking about the WG-20 and not the WG-2, the WG-20 is essentially the same as the WG-10, itself derived from the early WG-1. Both the WG-10 and WG-20 are special models sold only by Target stores in the US. They were made to a price point, to avoid direct competition with the WG-3, and now the WG-4.

There are minimal differences between the WG-3 and the WG-4, which should be mentioned in the review linked from the PF home page, but I haven't had a chance to read that. In any case, I would definitely pick the WG-3 model over the WG-20. It's hard to tell from a picture but if you hold both cameras side by side, and feel the difference in weight and size, you can tell right away that the WG-3 seems to have better build quality and was intended to be be the more "serious" camera.

The WG-3 is quite a bit better than the WG-20, which is the beginner model based on the WG-1 from 2011. Learn more here:
