My dad has asked me to recommend 'the best' compact p&s camera.

I'm considering recommending the RX100, but I'm not sure the Auto mode would be any good. The camera would be used in Auto mode 99.9% of the time, so most of the RX100 capabilities would be wasted. It's probably overkill for him and the cost would no doubt be off-putting.

What would you recommend?

The RX100 sounds like what he needs. The capabilities of the camera will not be wasted-Superior Auto will just select them for him as needed. The cost is higher, but in price/performance/capability the RX100 excels.
