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 SX70 HS and Sony HX400V side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Canon SX70 HS has external dimensions of 127 x 91 x 117 mm (5 x 3.58 x 4.61″) and weighs 608 g (1.34 lb / 21.45 oz) (including batteries).

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon SX70 HS is 52g lighter than the Sony HX400V but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Canon PowerShot SX70 HS nor Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX400V provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.
