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 L31 and Fujifilm Z1000EXR side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Nikon L31 has external dimensions of 96 x 59 x 29 mm (3.78 x 2.32 x 1.14″) and weighs 160 g (0.35 lb / 5.64 oz) (including batteries).

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Fujifilm Z1000EXR is 3g lighter than the Nikon L31 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Nikon Coolpix L31 nor Fujifilm FinePix Z1000EXR provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors. If weather sealing is a must-have feature for you, check these sections: Top Compact Cameras with Weather Sealing

Fujifilm Z1000EXR's 3.5" LCD screen is slightly larger than Nikon L31's 2.7" screen.
