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 Nikon P1000 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). Nikon P1000 has external dimensions of 146 x 119 x 181 mm (5.75 x 4.69 x 7.13″) and weighs 1415 g (3.12 lb / 49.91 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Nikon P1000. Ricoh WG-6 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 28mm narrower, 53mm shorter and 148mm thinner than Nikon P1000.
Here is the back view size comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Nikon P1000.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Nikon P1000.
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 (1169g ) than the Nikon P1000 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
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 P1000.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Nikon P1000's 3.20" LCD screen is slightly larger than Ricoh WG-6's 3 screen.
Moreover, Nikon P1000 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. On the other hand, Ricoh WG-6 has a fixed type screen which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to P1000.
