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 G5 X and Ricoh PX side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Canon G5 X has external dimensions of 112 x 76 x 44 mm (4.41 x 2.99 x 1.73″) and weighs 353 g (0.78 lb / 12.45 oz) (including batteries). Ricoh PX has external dimensions of 100 x 55 x 21 mm (3.94 x 2.17 x 0.83″) and weighs 156 g (0.34 lb / 5.50 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Canon G5 X and Ricoh PX. Ricoh PX is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 12mm narrower, 21mm shorter and 23mm thinner than Canon G5 X.
Here is the back view size comparison of Canon G5 X and Ricoh PX.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Canon G5 X and Ricoh PX.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Ricoh PX is significantly lighter (197g ) than the Canon G5 X which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Thanks to the weather sealed body of PX, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to G5 X.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon G5 X's 3" LCD screen is slightly larger than Ricoh PX's 2.7" screen.
Moreover, Canon G5 X 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, Ricoh PX has a fixed type screen which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to G5 X.
