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 S1500 and Sony A7S II side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Fujifilm S1500 has external dimensions of 103 x 73 x 68 mm (4.06 x 2.87 x 2.68″) and weighs 345 g (0.76 lb / 12.17 oz) (including batteries). Sony A7S II has external dimensions of 127 x 96 x 60 mm (5 x 3.78 x 2.36″) and weighs 627 g (1.38 lb / 22.12 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Fujifilm S1500 and Sony A7S II. Fujifilm S1500 is 24mm narrower and 23mm shorter than Sony A7S II but it is also 8mm thicker. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Fujifilm S1500 has a built-in lens but Sony A7S II doesn't. Once you put a lens on A7S II, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Fujifilm S1500 and Sony A7S II.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Fujifilm S1500 and Sony A7S II.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Fujifilm S1500 is significantly lighter (282g ) than the Sony A7S II which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Again, this comparison may not be very useful in real life as we are comparing the weight of a camera with a built-in lens to the body-only weight of an interchangeable lens camera. Once you put a lens on A7S II, the total kit will weigh much higher.
Thanks to the weather sealed body of A7S II, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to S1500.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Sony A7S II's 3 LCD screen is slightly larger than Fujifilm S1500's 2.7" screen.
In addition to the size advantage, Sony A7S II LCD screen also has a Tilting feature
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over the head levels. On the other hand, Fujifilm S1500 has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to A7S II.
