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 P300 and Nikon S800c side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Nikon P300 has external dimensions of 103 x 58 x 32 mm (4.06 x 2.28 x 1.26″) and weighs 189 g (0.42 lb / 6.67 oz) (including batteries). Nikon S800c has external dimensions of 111 x 60 x 27 mm (4.37 x 2.36 x 1.06″) and weighs 184 g (0.41 lb / 6.49 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Nikon P300 and Nikon S800c. Nikon P300 is 8mm narrower and 2mm shorter than Nikon S800c but it is also 5mm thicker.
Here is the back view size comparison of Nikon P300 and Nikon S800c.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Nikon P300 and Nikon S800c.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Nikon S800c is 5g lighter than the Nikon P300 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Nikon Coolpix P300 nor Nikon Coolpix S800c 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
LCD Screen Size and Features
Nikon S800c's 3.5" LCD screen is slightly larger than Nikon P300's 3" screen.
Unfortunately, both cameras has fixed screens so they don't tilt or flip in directions.
