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 P1000 and Panasonic FZ80 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Nikon P1000 has external dimensions of 146 x 119 x 181 mm (5.75 x 4.69 x 7.13″) and weighs 1415 g (3.12 lb / 49.91 oz) (including batteries). Panasonic FZ80 has external dimensions of 130 x 94 x 119 mm (5.12 x 3.7 x 4.69″) and weighs 616 g (1.36 lb / 21.73 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Nikon P1000 and the Panasonic FZ80. Panasonic FZ80 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 16mm narrower, 25mm shorter and 62mm thinner than Nikon P1000.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Nikon P1000 and Panasonic FZ80.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Nikon P1000 and Panasonic FZ80.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Panasonic FZ80 is significantly lighter (799g ) than the Nikon P1000 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither the Nikon Coolpix P1000 nor Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ80 (Lumix DMC-FZ82) provides any type of weather sealing in their bodies, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Nikon P1000's 3.20" LCD screen is slightly larger than Panasonic FZ80's 3 screen.
Moreover, Nikon P1000 sports a Fully Articulated screen
which you can change the angle and position of the screen almost freely, making it possible to shoot from waist or over-the-head levels, and especially very useful for shooting selfies and video. On the other hand, Panasonic FZ80 has a fixed type screen which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to P1000.
