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 Nikon S8200 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). Nikon S8200 has external dimensions of 104 x 59 x 33 mm (4.09 x 2.32 x 1.3″) and weighs 213 g (0.47 lb / 7.51 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Samsung TL225 and Nikon S8200. Samsung TL225 is 4mm narrower and 14mm thinner than Nikon S8200 but it is also 1mm taller.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Samsung TL225 and Nikon S8200.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Samsung TL225 is 26g lighter than the Nikon S8200 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
Unfortunately neither Samsung TL225 (ST550) nor Nikon Coolpix S8200 provides any type of weather sealing in their body, so you have to give extra care especially when you are shooting outdoors. If weather sealing is a must-have feature for you, check these sections: Top Compact Cameras with Weather Sealing
LCD Screen Size and Features
Samsung TL225's 3.5" LCD screen is slightly larger than Nikon S8200's 3 screen.
