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 Nikon B500 and Samsung HZ50W side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Nikon B500 has external dimensions of 114 x 78 x 95 mm (4.49 x 3.07 x 3.74″) and weighs 541 g (1.19 lb / 19.08 oz) (including batteries). Samsung HZ50W has external dimensions of 116 x 83 x 91 mm (4.57 x 3.27 x 3.58″) and weighs 426 g (0.94 lb / 15.03 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Nikon B500 and Samsung HZ50W. Nikon B500 is 2mm narrower and 5mm shorter than Samsung HZ50W but it is also 4mm thicker.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Samsung HZ50W is significantly lighter (115g ) than the Nikon B500 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither Nikon Coolpix B500 nor Samsung HZ50W (WB5500) provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Nikon B500 and Samsung HZ50W's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3.00".
On the other hand, Nikon B500 features a Tilting screen
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over the head levels whereas the Samsung HZ50W has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to B500.
