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-T2 and Canon SX420 IS side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Fujifilm X-T2 has external dimensions of 133 x 92 x 49 mm (5.24 x 3.62 x 1.9″) and weighs 507 g (including batteries). Canon SX420 IS has external dimensions of 104 x 69 x 85 mm (4.09 x 2.72 x 3.35″) and weighs 325 g (0.72 lb / 11.46 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Fujifilm X-T2 and Canon SX420 IS. Canon SX420 IS is 29mm narrower and 23mm shorter than Fujifilm X-T2 but it is also 36mm thicker. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Canon SX420 IS has a built-in lens but Fujifilm X-T2 doesn't. Once you put a lens on X-T2, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Fujifilm X-T2 and Canon SX420 IS.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Fujifilm X-T2 and Canon SX420 IS.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon SX420 IS is significantly lighter (182g ) than the Fujifilm X-T2 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-T2, the total kit will weigh much higher.
With its weather sealed body, we believe that X-T2 has a big advantage over SX420 IS which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Fujifilm X-T2's 3.20" LCD screen is slightly larger than Canon SX420 IS's 3" screen.
In addition to the size advantage, Fujifilm X-T2 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, Canon SX420 IS has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to X-T2.
