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 Fujifilm X-A1 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). Fujifilm X-A1 has external dimensions of 117 x 67 x 39 mm (4.6 x 2.62 x 1.54″) and weighs 330 g (0.73 lb / 11.64 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Fujifilm X-A1. Ricoh WG-6 is 1mm shorter and 6mm thinner than Fujifilm X-A1 but it is also 1mm wider. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Ricoh WG-6 has a built-in lens but Fujifilm X-A1 doesn't. Once you put a lens on X-A1, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Fujifilm X-A1.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Fujifilm X-A1.
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 (84g ) than the Fujifilm X-A1 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 X-A1, 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 X-A1.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Ricoh WG-6 and Fujifilm X-A1's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3.00".
On the other hand, Fujifilm X-A1 features a Tilting screen
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over the head levels whereas the Ricoh WG-6 has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to X-A1.
