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 SX120 IS and Samsung EX2F side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Canon SX120 IS has external dimensions of 111 x 71 x 45 mm (4.37 x 2.8 x 1.77″) and weighs 285 g (0.63 lb / 10.05 oz) (including batteries). Samsung EX2F has external dimensions of 112 x 62 x 29 mm (4.41 x 2.44 x 1.14″) and weighs 294 g (0.65 lb / 10.37 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Canon SX120 IS and Samsung EX2F. Samsung EX2F is 9mm shorter and 16mm thinner than Canon SX120 IS but it is also 1mm wider.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon SX120 IS is 9g lighter than the Samsung EX2F but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Canon PowerShot SX120 IS nor Samsung EX2F provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon SX120 IS and Samsung EX2F's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3".
On the other hand, Samsung EX2F 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. Canon SX120 IS's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to EX2F.
