The review in the Wall Street Journal the other day was very good in terms of explaining the pros and cons of this camera. There have been a number of issues with the menu and how many menu items there are. Having had numerous digital cameras, I can tell you that one MUST READ the Manual. The manual that came in the box called the guide (I guess) is not terribly impressive. The 200 page manuals I got with several Pentaxs over the years were very good and required me to study them for a month. I'd like a nice 200 page manual with the RX100. With practice you can make some great photographs with cameras like this one. It takes practice.Its ability to handle low light photos is amazing. I turned off the lights in my living room. There was enough illumination from the porch lights to give me a few amazing photos of lamps and chairs in the living room. My fancy Canon can do that if and only if I play games with the settings using a tripod.On a long walk today I managed to get some awesome photos with the RX100. It does everything I want. My next step is to study up on how to use tmanual and program modes.My three issues: 1) I have had a devil of a time to get the panorama setting to work. Out of 13 tries I got it to work once. It keeps coming up with an error or something that says (a) moving too slow, (b) not so fast, and (c) keep it level. One Youtube movie showed a guy flashing the thing over a backyard with no particular concern for level and it worked great. Go figure. I shall keep trying. Of course, I can do panoramas using multiple shots and merging in Photoshop. 2) the other is the manual. 3) What does T mean?One owner suggested keeping your camera in a plastic bag. I keep mine in a 1 qt zip lock freezer bag.While I have the money, the RX100 meets all of my needs for fair weather photography. I love my large Canon, but it is a pain to wear around my neck. This is a darned fun pocket camera to shoot.Lastly, taking good pictures is all about EYE. A camera with a hundred features cannot make up for rotten photographic talent. I see lots of lousy iPhone photos, which will only improve when Apple makes a phone that floats in the air and uses an algorithm to take exceptional pictures. If you want a camera as a status symbol then go buy a $10,000 Hasselblad. Even it will take rotten pictures if in the wrong hands.I finally located the manual for the RX100. It is under documents. Sony. Com and then go from there.
