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 FujiFilm S2500HD and Samsung TL500 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. FujiFilm S2500HD has external dimensions of 110 x 73 x 81 mm (4.33 x 2.89 x 3.19″) and weighs 337 g (0.74 lb / 11.89 oz) (including batteries). Samsung TL500 has external dimensions of 114 x 63 x 29 mm (4.49 x 2.48 x 1.14″) and weighs 386 g (0.85 lb / 13.62 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of FujiFilm S2500HD and Samsung TL500. Samsung TL500 is 10mm shorter and 52mm thinner than FujiFilm S2500HD but it is also 4mm wider.

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
FujiFilm S2500HD is 49g lighter than the Samsung TL500 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither FujiFilm FinePix S2500HD (FinePix S2600HD) nor Samsung TL500 (EX1) 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
FujiFilm S2500HD and Samsung TL500's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3.
On the other hand, Samsung TL500 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. FujiFilm S2500HD's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to TL500.
