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 SX540 HS and Nikon P530 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Canon SX540 HS has external dimensions of 120 x 82 x 92 mm (4.72 x 3.23 x 3.62″) and weighs 442 g (0.97 lb / 15.59 oz) (including batteries). Nikon P530 has external dimensions of 123 x 84 x 98 mm (4.83 x 3.31 x 3.87″) and weighs 494 g (including batteries).

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon SX540 HS is 52g lighter than the Nikon P530 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Canon PowerShot SX540 HS nor Nikon Coolpix P530 provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.
