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 D80 and Canon D10 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Nikon D80 has external dimensions of 132 x 103 x 77 mm (5.2 x 4.06 x 3.03″) and weighs 668 g (1.47 lb / 23.56 oz) (including batteries). Canon D10 has external dimensions of 104 x 67 x 49 mm (4.09 x 2.64 x 1.93″) and weighs 190 g (0.42 lb / 6.70 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Nikon D80 and Canon D10. Canon D10 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 28mm narrower, 36mm shorter and 28mm thinner than Nikon D80. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Canon D10 has a built-in lens but Nikon D80 doesn't. Once you put a lens on D80, its thickness will increase significantly.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon D10 is significantly lighter (478g ) than the Nikon D80 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
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 D80, the total kit will weigh much higher.
Thanks to the weather sealed body of D10, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to D80.
