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 SH-3 and Olympus 1s side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Olympus SH-3 has external dimensions of 109 x 63 x 42 mm (4.29 x 2.48 x 1.65″) and weighs 271 g (0.60 lb / 9.56 oz) (including batteries).

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Olympus SH-3 is significantly lighter (131g ) than the Olympus 1s which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither Olympus Stylus SH-3 nor Olympus Stylus 1s provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Olympus SH-3 and Olympus 1s's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3.00".
On the other hand, Olympus 1s features a Tilting screen
