I always thought the only cameras that couldn't be called point and shoots were ones that don't have an auto mode. If it has an auto mode anyone can just point at something and press the shutter. So yes I think these cameras can be called point and shoots. The other term is compact camera... The RX100 for sure is a compact... but the RX1.. gets a little fuzzy there.

Yep. These debates on nomenclatures remind me of automotive debates on manual transmission versus automatic versus semi-automatic. Then, "compact car" to generally imply an economy car, and yet expensive sports cars would also fit the bill.
