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 S1 and Sony HX300 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Fujifilm S1 has external dimensions of 133 x 91 x 110 mm (5.24 x 3.58 x 4.33″) and weighs 680 g (1.50 lb / 23.99 oz) (including batteries). Sony HX300 has external dimensions of 130 x 93 x 103 mm (5.1 x 3.67 x 4.06″) and weighs 623 g (including batteries).

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Sony HX300 is 57g lighter than the Fujifilm S1 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
With its weather sealed body, we believe that S1 has a big advantage over HX300 which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
