Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.

Unfortunately neither Olympus Stylus 1s nor Nikon Coolpix S9700 provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

On the other hand, Olympus 1s features a Tilting screen
