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 S2800HD and Canon G12 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. FujiFilm S2800HD has external dimensions of 110 x 74 x 82 mm (4.33 x 2.91 x 3.23″) and weighs 437 g (0.96 lb / 15.41 oz) (including batteries). Canon G12 has external dimensions of 112 x 76 x 48 mm (4.41 x 2.99 x 1.89″) and weighs 401 g (0.88 lb / 14.14 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of FujiFilm S2800HD and Canon G12. FujiFilm S2800HD is 2mm narrower and 2mm shorter than Canon G12 but it is also 34mm thicker.
Here is the back view size comparison of FujiFilm S2800HD and Canon G12.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon G12 is 36g lighter than the FujiFilm S2800HD but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither FujiFilm FinePix S2800HD (FinePix S2900HD) nor Canon PowerShot G12 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 S2800HD's 3" LCD screen is slightly larger than Canon G12's 2.8" screen.
On the other hand, Canon G12 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. On the other hand, FujiFilm S2800HD has a fixed type screen which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to G12.
