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 Sony HX20V and Panasonic ZS60 side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Sony HX20V has external dimensions of 107 x 62 x 35 mm (4.21 x 2.44 x 1.38″) and weighs 254 g (0.56 lb / 8.96 oz) (including batteries).

Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Sony HX20V is 28g lighter than the Panasonic ZS60 but we don't think this will make a significant difference.
