Size and weight are big decision factors when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, we are going to illustrate the Nikon L31 and Pentax RS1500 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). Pentax RS1500 has external dimensions of 114 x 58 x 28 mm (4.49 x 2.28 x 1.1″) and weighs 157 g (0.35 lb / 5.54 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Nikon L31 and the Pentax RS1500. Pentax RS1500 is 1mm shorter and 1mm thinner than Nikon L31 but it is also 18mm wider.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Nikon L31 and Pentax RS1500.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Nikon L31 and Pentax RS1500.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Pentax RS1500 is 3g lighter than the Nikon L31 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Thanks to the weather-sealed body of the RS1500, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to the L31.
