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 Nikon D3200 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). Nikon D3200 has external dimensions of 125 x 96 x 77 mm (4.92 x 3.78 x 3.03″) and weighs 505 g (1.11 lb / 17.81 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Ricoh G900 and Nikon D3200. Ricoh G900 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 7mm narrower, 30mm shorter and 44mm thinner than Nikon D3200. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Ricoh G900 has a built-in lens but Nikon D3200 doesn't. Once you put a lens on D3200, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Ricoh G900 and Nikon D3200.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Ricoh G900 and Nikon D3200.
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 (258g ) than the Nikon D3200 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 D3200, the total kit will weigh much higher.
Thanks to the weather sealed body of G900, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to D3200.
