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 TL225 and Canon ELPH 530 HS side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Samsung TL225 has external dimensions of 100 x 60 x 19 mm (3.94 x 2.36 x 0.75″) and weighs 187 g (0.41 lb / 6.60 oz) (including batteries). Canon ELPH 530 HS has external dimensions of 86 x 54 x 20 mm (3.39 x 2.13 x 0.79″) and weighs 163 g (0.36 lb / 5.75 oz) (including batteries).

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon ELPH 530 HS is 24g lighter than the Samsung TL225 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Samsung TL225 (ST550) nor Canon PowerShot ELPH 530 HS (IXUS 510 HS) provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors.
