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 SX620 HS and Sony WX500 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Canon SX620 HS has external dimensions of 97 x 57 x 28 mm (3.81 x 2.24 x 1.1″) and weighs 182 g (0.40 lb / 6.42 oz) (including batteries).

Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Canon SX620 HS and the Sony WX500. Canon SX620 HS is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 5mm narrower, 1mm shorter and 8mm thinner than Sony WX500.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Canon SX620 HS and Sony WX500.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon SX620 HS is significantly lighter (54g ) than the Sony WX500 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither the Canon PowerShot SX620 HS nor Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX500 provides any type of weather sealing in their bodies, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon SX620 HS and Sony WX500's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
On the other hand, Sony WX500 features a Tilting screen
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over-the-head levels whereas the Canon SX620 HS has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to WX500.
