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 P950 and Canon SX700 HS side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Nikon P950 has external dimensions of 140 x 110 x 150 mm (5.51 x 4.33 x 5.91″) and weighs 1005 g (2.22 lb / 35.45 oz) (including batteries). Canon SX700 HS has external dimensions of 113 x 66 x 35 mm (4.45 x 2.6 x 1.38″) and weighs 269 g (0.59 lb / 9.49 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Nikon P950 and Canon SX700 HS. Canon SX700 HS is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 27mm narrower, 44mm shorter and 115mm thinner than Nikon P950.
Here is the back view size comparison of Nikon P950 and Canon SX700 HS.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Nikon P950 and Canon SX700 HS.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon SX700 HS is significantly lighter (736g ) than the Nikon P950 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither Nikon Coolpix P950 nor Canon PowerShot SX700 HS provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Nikon P950's 3.2" LCD screen is slightly larger than Canon SX700 HS's 3" screen.
Moreover, Nikon P950 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, Canon SX700 HS has a fixed type screen which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to P950.
