Size and weight is a big decision factor when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, We are going to illustrate Canon G1 X III and Nikon S3700 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Canon G1 X III has external dimensions of 115 x 78 x 51 mm (4.53 x 3.07 x 2.01″) and weighs 399 g (0.88 lb / 14.07 oz) (including batteries). Nikon S3700 has external dimensions of 96 x 58 x 20 mm (3.78 x 2.28 x 0.79″) and weighs 118 g (0.26 lb / 4.16 oz) (including batteries).

Here is the back view size comparison of Canon G1 X III and Nikon S3700.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Canon G1 X III and Nikon S3700.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Nikon S3700 is significantly lighter (281g ) than the Canon G1 X III which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
With its weather sealed body, we believe that G1 X III has a big advantage over S3700 which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon G1 X III's 3" LCD screen is slightly larger than Nikon S3700's 2.7" screen.
Moreover, Canon G1 X III sports a Fully Articulated screen
which you can change the angle and position of the screen almost freely, making it possible to shoot from waist or over the head levels, and especially very useful for shooting selfies and video. On the other hand, Nikon S3700 has a fixed type screen which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to G1 X III.
