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 D7000 and Fujifilm HS50 EXR side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Nikon D7000 has external dimensions of 132 x 105 x 77 mm (5.2 x 4.13 x 3.03″) and weighs 780 g (1.72 lb / 27.51 oz) (including batteries). Fujifilm HS50 EXR has external dimensions of and weighs 808 g (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Nikon D7000 and Fujifilm HS50 EXR. Nikon D7000 is 3mm narrower and 69mm thinner than Fujifilm HS50 EXR but it is also 4mm taller. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Fujifilm HS50 EXR has a built-in lens but Nikon D7000 doesn't. Once you put a lens on D7000, its thickness will increase significantly.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Nikon D7000 and Fujifilm HS50 EXR.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Nikon D7000 is 28g lighter than the Fujifilm HS50 EXR but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Again, this comparison may not be very useful in real life as we are comparing the weight of a camera with a built-in lens to the body-only weight of an interchangeable lens camera. Once you put a lens on D7000, the total kit will weigh much higher.
With its weather sealed body, we believe that D7000 has a big advantage over HS50 EXR which doesn't provide any kind of environmental sealing.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Nikon D7000 and Fujifilm HS50 EXR's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3".
On the other hand, Fujifilm HS50 EXR 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. Nikon D7000's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to HS50 EXR.
