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 WG-6 and Canon 1200D side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Ricoh WG-6 has external dimensions of 118 x 66 x 33 mm (4.65 x 2.6 x 1.3″) and weighs 246 g (0.54 lb / 8.68 oz) (including batteries). Canon 1200D has external dimensions of 130 x 100 x 78 mm (5.12 x 3.94 x 3.07″) and weighs 480 g (1.06 lb / 16.93 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Canon 1200D. Ricoh WG-6 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 12mm narrower, 34mm shorter and 45mm thinner than Canon 1200D. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Ricoh WG-6 has a built-in lens but Canon 1200D doesn't. Once you put a lens on 1200D, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Canon 1200D.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Canon 1200D.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Ricoh WG-6 is significantly lighter (234g ) than the Canon 1200D 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 1200D, the total kit will weigh much higher.
Thanks to the weather sealed body of WG-6, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to 1200D.
