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 S800c and Canon G9 X II side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. 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). Canon G9 X II has external dimensions of 98 x 58 x 31 mm (3.86 x 2.28 x 1.22″) and weighs 206 g (0.45 lb / 7.27 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Nikon S800c and Canon G9 X II. Canon G9 X II is 13mm narrower and 2mm shorter than Nikon S800c but it is also 4mm thicker.
Here is the back view size comparison of Nikon S800c and Canon G9 X II.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Nikon S800c and Canon G9 X II.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Nikon S800c is 22g lighter than the Canon G9 X II but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Nikon Coolpix S800c nor Canon PowerShot G9 X Mark II 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 Canon G9 X II's 3" screen.
