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 SX720 HS 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 SX720 HS has external dimensions of 110 x 64 x 36 mm (4.33 x 2.52 x 1.42″) and weighs 270 g (0.60 lb / 9.52 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Fujifilm X-T2 and Canon SX720 HS. Canon SX720 HS is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 23mm narrower, 28mm shorter and 13mm thinner than Fujifilm X-T2. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Canon SX720 HS 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 SX720 HS.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Fujifilm X-T2 and Canon SX720 HS.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon SX720 HS is significantly lighter (237g ) 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 SX720 HS which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Fujifilm X-T2's 3.2" LCD screen is slightly larger than Canon SX720 HS'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 SX720 HS has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to X-T2.
