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 Samsung NX1000 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). Samsung NX1000 has external dimensions of 114 x 63 x 37 mm (4.49 x 2.48 x 1.46″) and weighs 222 g (0.49 lb / 7.83 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Ricoh G900 and Samsung NX1000. Samsung NX1000 is 4mm narrower and 3mm shorter than Ricoh G900 but it is also 4mm thicker. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Ricoh G900 has a built-in lens but Samsung NX1000 doesn't. Once you put a lens on NX1000, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Ricoh G900 and Samsung NX1000.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Ricoh G900 and Samsung NX1000.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Samsung NX1000 is 25g lighter than the Ricoh G900 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
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 NX1000, 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 NX1000.
