'Camera Size'-up your digital SLR

New site lets you get a side-by-side comparison of camera models, which could save a lot of time for shopping shutterbugs.

Shopping for a new shooter? Newly launched Web site Camera Size lets shutterbugs compare two camera models head to head.

After a user makes a selection from dual dropdown menus, the site displays a visual comparison of the cameras, together with information such as width and height, as well as how much larger/smaller one model is.

The portal also lets you configure the way comparisons are displayed. Users can switch sides, stack a camera in front of the other, and alternate between orientations. An graphic showing a AA battery can also be dragged around the page as a size reference.

We think this site will come in useful when comparing the physical dimensions of competing models. It'll definitely save a lot of time, considering the hassle of gathering images and camera specs from different sites just to draw a decent comparison. Do note that the site's camera list is limited to recent models.

On a related note, there's a similar Web site called Phone Size for mobile phones. Unlike Camera Size, Phone Size allows users to compare 15 models at a time, and each phone will have its specifications--such as measurements, screen size and resolution--displayed, too.
