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 Olympus E-M10 IV and Canon G1 X III side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Olympus E-M10 IV has external dimensions of 122 x 84 x 49 mm (4.8 x 3.31 x 1.93″) and weighs 383 g (0.84 lb / 13.51 oz) (including batteries). Canon G1 X III has external dimensions of 115 x 78 x 51 mm (4.53 x 3.07 x 2.01″) and weighs 399 g (0.88 lb / 14.07 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Olympus E-M10 IV and Canon G1 X III. Canon G1 X III is 7mm narrower and 6mm shorter than Olympus E-M10 IV but it is also 2mm thicker. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Canon G1 X III has a built-in lens but Olympus E-M10 IV doesn't. Once you put a lens on E-M10 IV, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Olympus E-M10 IV and Canon G1 X III.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Olympus E-M10 IV and Canon G1 X III.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Olympus E-M10 IV is 16g lighter than the Canon G1 X III 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 E-M10 IV, the total kit will weigh much higher.
Thanks to the weather sealed body of G1 X III, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to E-M10 IV.
