RX100 - avoiding overexposure/blown brights

Hi all,

I have been experimenting and am trying to find a "happy medium" so that I can expand the tonal range as much as possible in images.

I realize it's limited, but would like to know the best way to:

1) set up cam to meter and average or otherwise automatically expose to limit blown highlights

2) (if possible) Can I set function to "prepare" camera for situations in which this may happen, e.g. activate fast shutter and -EV?

(Been looking through the manual... may have missed it, though the manual is awful)

Sample pic attached (nevermind focus, just shot to show blown outside area in daylight) Obviously it's exposing properly for the inside elements, but I'd like to grab outdoors if possible and adjust exposure to bring out dark details in post.

thanks,
Andrew
