I was born by the river in a little tent,<br />And just like the river I've been running ever since,<br />It's been a long, long time coming,<br />But I know change is gonna come.

Looks like the only improvement was 4k video

And fewer MP

The plus side is.  If you were thinking about getting a tg4 now is the time  due to the price drop.

Improved ergonomics controls

the smaller sensor should have better quality images, although this is likely to be noticed at the ends of the TG-4's bell curve for quality, and minutely at that (high ISO, low light, etc)

Expanded ISO (12800 vs 6400)

additional Video modes - as in bunches, including 4K 30fps and 120fps HD

faster frames per second capability (20fps vs 5fps)

thermometer

image stabilization should be better (minimally, but better)

deducted manual exposure mode (not a positve thing, IMO)

additional built-in flash modes

deducted center weighted metering (not a positive)

USH-I compatibility with storage (positive)

reduced battery life!!! (in today's work of ever lengthening battery life, how can this be a positive thing?)

added waterproof underwater housing accessory (may or may not work with the TG-4) and flash diffuser accessories (best for macro and portrait)

I'd not buy it, but then again, I don't use the TG-x(?) I have anyway.

Still waiting on my Tg-1 to give up the ghost.  -0-          And my pics don't totally suck, so I'm standing pat.

Plus, nobody looks at TR's anymore, right?  :laugh:

I think my TG-3 will last a few more years... does the job, no reason to "upgrade"

I should've elaborated. Is this new camera going to take much better pics than the 4? I don't fully understand all the camera talk describing the upgrades. My photo skills are subpar for the most part, but I get some decent shots from time to time. If the 5 is no big upgrade for photo quality, which camera is? As we've spoken about in the past, I think using the lighting to your advantage is more important than a better camera....? Much obliged, amigos.

The 5 isn't going to make you a better photographer, jis say'in
