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 Pentax WG-2 GPS and Olympus XZ-2 iHS side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Pentax WG-2 GPS has external dimensions of 122 x 61 x 30 mm (4.8 x 2.4 x 1.18″) and weighs 198 g (0.44 lb / 6.98 oz) (including batteries). Olympus XZ-2 iHS has external dimensions of 113 x 65 x 48 mm (4.45 x 2.56 x 1.89″) and weighs 346 g (0.76 lb / 12.20 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Pentax WG-2 GPS and the Olympus XZ-2 iHS. Pentax WG-2 GPS is 4mm shorter and 18mm thinner than Olympus XZ-2 iHS but it is also 9mm wider.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Pentax WG-2 GPS and Olympus XZ-2 iHS.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Pentax WG-2 GPS is significantly lighter (148g ) than the Olympus XZ-2 iHS which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Thanks to the weather-sealed body of the WG-2 GPS, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to the XZ-2 iHS.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Pentax WG-2 GPS and Olympus XZ-2 iHS's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
On the other hand, Olympus XZ-2 iHS 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 Pentax WG-2 GPS has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to XZ-2 iHS.
