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 Samsung NX30 and Nikon Z5 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Samsung NX30 has external dimensions of 127 x 96 x 58 mm (5 x 3.78 x 2.28″) and weighs 375 g (0.83 lb / 13.23 oz) (including batteries). Nikon Z5 has external dimensions of 134 x 101 x 70 mm (5.28 x 3.98 x 2.76″) and weighs 675 g (1.49 lb / 23.81 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Samsung NX30 and Nikon Z5. Samsung NX30 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 7mm narrower, 5mm shorter and 12mm thinner than Nikon Z5.
Here is the back view size comparison of Samsung NX30 and Nikon Z5.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Samsung NX30 and Nikon Z5.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Samsung NX30 is significantly lighter (300g ) than the Nikon Z5 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Also keep in mind that body weight is not the only deciding factor when comparing two interchangeable camera bodies, you have to also take into account the lenses that you will be using with these bodies. Since Nikon Z5 has a Full frame sensor and Samsung NX30 has a smaller APS-C sensor, Samsung NX30's lenses for a similar focal length and aperture will generally be lighter and smaller than the Nikon Z5 lenses.
Thanks to the weather sealed body of Z5, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to NX30.
