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 Olympus E-M5 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). Olympus E-M5 has external dimensions of 122 x 89 x 43 mm (4.8 x 3.5 x 1.69″) and weighs 425 g (0.94 lb / 14.99 oz) (including batteries).
Below you can see the front view size comparison of Samsung TL225 and Olympus E-M5. Samsung TL225 is clearly the smaller of the two cameras. Its body is 22mm narrower, 29mm shorter and 24mm thinner than Olympus E-M5. As you can tell, actually this is not a fair size comparison since Samsung TL225 has a built-in lens but Olympus E-M5 doesn't. Once you put a lens on E-M5, its thickness will increase significantly.
Here is the back view size comparison of Samsung TL225 and Olympus E-M5.
Now lets look at the top view comparison of Samsung TL225 and Olympus E-M5.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Samsung TL225 is significantly lighter (238g ) than the Olympus E-M5 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-M5, the total kit will weigh much higher.
Thanks to the weather sealed body of E-M5, you can use this camera with more confidence under conditions where there is risk of exposure to water and dust compared to TL225.
LCD Screen Size and Features
Samsung TL225's 3.5" LCD screen is slightly larger than Olympus E-M5's 3" screen.
On the other hand, Olympus E-M5 LCD screen has a Tilting feature
where you can change the angle of the screen to make it easier to shoot from waist or over the head levels. On the other hand, Samsung TL225 has a fixed type screen which provides less flexibility in shooting positions compared to E-M5.
