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 X-T1 IR and Canon G7 X side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Fujifilm X-T1 IR has external dimensions of 129 x 90 x 47 mm (5.08 x 3.54 x 1.85″) and weighs 440 g (0.97 lb / 15.52 oz) (including batteries). Canon G7 X has external dimensions of 103 x 60 x 40 mm (4.06 x 2.36 x 1.57″) and weighs 304 g (0.67 lb / 10.72 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Fujifilm X-T1 IR and Canon G7 X. Canon G7 X is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 26mm narrower, 30mm shorter and 7mm thinner than Fujifilm X-T1 IR. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Canon G7 X has a built-in lens but Fujifilm X-T1 IR doesn't. Once you put a lens on X-T1 IR, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Fujifilm X-T1 IR and Canon G7 X.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Fujifilm X-T1 IR and Canon G7 X.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon G7 X is significantly lighter (136g ) than the Fujifilm X-T1 IR 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 X-T1 IR, the total kit will weigh much higher.
With its weather sealed body, we believe that X-T1 IR has a big advantage over G7 X which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
