Size and weight are big decision factors when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, we are going to illustrate the Canon R8 and Canon R6 II side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Canon R8 has external dimensions of 133 x 86 x 70 mm (5.24 x 3.39 x 2.76″) and weighs 461 g (1.02 lb / 16.26 oz) (including batteries). Canon R6 II has external dimensions of 138 x 98 x 88 mm (5.43 x 3.84 x 3.48″) and weighs 680 g (1.50 lb / 23.99 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Canon R8 and the Canon R6 II. Canon R8 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 5mm narrower, 12mm shorter and 18mm thinner than Canon R6 II.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Canon R8 and Canon R6 II.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Canon R8 and Canon R6 II.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon R8 is significantly lighter (219g ) than the Canon R6 II which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Also keep in mind that body weight is not the only deciding factor when comparing two interchangeable camera bodies, you also have to take into account the lenses that you will be using with these bodies. Since both Canon R8 and Canon R6 II have the same Canon RF lens mount and Full frame sized sensors, lenses will not be a differentiator on total size of the system.
Both the R8 and the R6 II have weather sealings in their bodies, making them resistant to water and dust.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon R8 and Canon R6 II's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
Both cameras feature Fully Articulating screens
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over-the-head levels. Fully articulating screens are also useful for taking Selfies and video.
