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 Ricoh GR III and Canon G1 X III side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Ricoh GR III has external dimensions of 109 x 62 x 33 mm (4.29 x 2.44 x 1.3″) and weighs 257 g (0.57 lb / 9.07 oz) (including batteries). Canon G1 X III has external dimensions of 115 x 78 x 51 mm (4.53 x 3.07 x 2.01″) and weighs 399 g (0.88 lb / 14.07 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Ricoh GR III and the Canon G1 X III. Ricoh GR III is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 6mm narrower, 16mm shorter and 18mm thinner than Canon G1 X III.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Ricoh GR III and Canon G1 X III.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Ricoh GR III and Canon G1 X III.
Weight is another important factor, especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Ricoh GR III is significantly lighter (142g ) than the Canon G1 X III which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Thanks to the weather-sealed body of the G1 X III, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to the GR III.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Ricoh GR III and Canon G1 X III's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
On the other hand, Canon G1 X III sports a Fully Articulated screen
which you can change the angle and position of the screen almost freely, making it possible to shoot from waist or over-the-head levels, and especially very useful for shooting selfies and video. Ricoh GR III's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to G1 X III.
