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 Panasonic TS2 and Canon M side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Panasonic TS2 has external dimensions of 99 x 63 x 24 mm (3.9 x 2.48 x 0.94″) and weighs 188 g (0.41 lb / 6.63 oz) (including batteries). Canon M has external dimensions of 109 x 66 x 32 mm (4.29 x 2.6 x 1.26″) and weighs 298 g (0.66 lb / 10.51 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Panasonic TS2 and Canon M. Panasonic TS2 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 10mm narrower, 3mm shorter and 8mm thinner than Canon M. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Panasonic TS2 has a built-in lens but Canon M doesn't. Once you put a lens on M, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Panasonic TS2 and Canon M.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Panasonic TS2 and Canon M.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Panasonic TS2 is significantly lighter (110g ) than the Canon M which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
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 M, the total kit will weigh much higher.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon M's 3" LCD screen is slightly larger than Panasonic TS2's 2.7" screen.
Unfortunately, both cameras has fixed screens so they don't tilt or flip in directions.
