Size and weight are big decision factors when you are trying to find the ideal camera for your needs.
In this section, we are going to illustrate the Panasonic FZ1000 II and Canon SX70 HS side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Panasonic FZ1000 II has external dimensions of 136 x 97 x 132 mm (5.35 x 3.82 x 5.2″) and weighs 808 g (1.78 lb / 28.50 oz) (including batteries). Canon SX70 HS has external dimensions of 127 x 91 x 117 mm (5 x 3.58 x 4.61″) and weighs 608 g (1.34 lb / 21.45 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Panasonic FZ1000 II and the Canon SX70 HS. Canon SX70 HS is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 9mm narrower, 6mm shorter and 15mm thinner than Panasonic FZ1000 II.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Panasonic FZ1000 II and Canon SX70 HS.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Panasonic FZ1000 II and Canon SX70 HS.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon SX70 HS is significantly lighter (200g ) than the Panasonic FZ1000 II which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither the Panasonic Lumix DC-FZ1000 II nor Canon PowerShot SX70 HS provides any type of weather sealing in their bodies, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.

LCD Screen Size and Features
Panasonic FZ1000 II and Canon SX70 HS's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
Both cameras feature Fully Articulating screens
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over-the-head levels. Fully articulating screens are also useful for taking Selfies and video.
