Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.

Unfortunately neither the Nikon Coolpix L31 nor Fujifilm FinePix F550 EXR provides any type of weather sealing in their bodies, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.
