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 Olympus E-M10 III 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). Olympus E-M10 III has external dimensions of 122 x 84 x 50 mm (4.8 x 3.31 x 1.97″) and weighs 410 g (0.90 lb / 14.46 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front-view size comparison of the Ricoh WG-6 and the Olympus E-M10 III. Ricoh WG-6 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 4mm narrower, 18mm shorter and 17mm thinner than Olympus E-M10 III. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Ricoh WG-6 has a built-in lens but Olympus E-M10 III doesn't. Once you put a lens on E-M10 III, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of the Ricoh WG-6 and Olympus E-M10 III.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Ricoh WG-6 and Olympus E-M10 III.
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 (164g ) than the Olympus E-M10 III 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 E-M10 III, the total kit will weigh much higher.
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 E-M10 III.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Ricoh WG-6 and Olympus E-M10 III's LCD screens have the same diagonal size of 3.00 inches.
On the other hand, Olympus E-M10 III 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 E-M10 III.
