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 WG-6 and Nikon P510 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).

Now lets look at the top view comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Nikon P510.
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 (309g ) than the Nikon P510 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Thanks to the weather-sealed body of the WG-6, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to the P510.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Ricoh WG-6 and Nikon P510's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
On the other hand, Nikon P510 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 P510.
