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 ZV-1 and Canon G9 X side-by-side from the front, back and top in their relative dimensions. Sony ZV-1 has external dimensions of 105 x 60 x 44 mm (4.13 x 2.36 x 1.73″) and weighs 294 g (0.65 lb / 10.37 oz) (including batteries).

Now lets look at the top view comparison of Sony ZV-1 and Canon G9 X.
Weight is another important factor especially when deciding on a camera that you want to carry with you all day.
Canon G9 X is significantly lighter (85g ) than the Sony ZV-1 which may become a big advantage especially on long walking trips.
Unfortunately neither Sony ZV-1 nor Canon PowerShot G9 X 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
Sony ZV-1 and Canon G9 X's LCD screens has the same diagonal size of 3".
On the other hand, Sony ZV-1 sports a Fully Articulated screen
which you can change the angle and position of the screen almost freely, making it possible to shoot from waist or over the head levels, and especially very useful for shooting selfies and video. Canon G9 X's LCD screen is a fixed type which provides almost no flexibility in shooting positions compared to ZV-1.
