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 Ricoh G900 and Canon 1D X II side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Ricoh G900 has external dimensions of 118 x 66 x 33 mm (4.65 x 2.6 x 1.3″) and weighs 247 g (0.54 lb / 8.71 oz) (including batteries). Canon 1D X II has external dimensions of 158 x 168 x 83 mm (6.22 x 6.61 x 3.27″) and weighs 1530 g (3.37 lb / 53.97 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Ricoh G900 and Canon 1D X II. Ricoh G900 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 40mm narrower, 102mm shorter and 50mm thinner than Canon 1D X II. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Ricoh G900 has a built-in lens but Canon 1D X II doesn't. Once you put a lens on 1D X MII, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Ricoh G900 and Canon 1D X II.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Ricoh G900 and Canon 1D X II.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Ricoh G900 is significantly lighter (1283g ) than the Canon 1D X II 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 1D X MII, the total kit will weigh much higher.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Canon 1D X II's 3.2 LCD screen is slightly larger than Ricoh G900's 3" screen.
Unfortunately, both cameras has fixed screens so they don't tilt or flip in directions.
