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

LCD Screen Size and Features
Panasonic FZ80 and Sony RX10 IV's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
On the other hand, Sony RX10 IV features a Tilting screen
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over-the-head levels whereas the Panasonic FZ80 has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to RX10 IV.
