Thanks. Actually this is nothing special.

Settings for sweep pano in RX-100 - not many are there. I shot in "up" direction (camera menu) - not to obtain spaghetti image, just a more panoramic than 16:9. My tips:
- be carreful no to wave the camera to much. Otherwise vertical lines will sway and horizontal will wave in the final image. It can be corrected in PP to some extent using Photoshop warp feature;
- moving objects like people, cars, etc, can come out sliced, but give it another try - there is a big chance to catch moving objects just fine;
- decide about right focus distance and obtained exposure level (it is automatic) in advance - when capturing starts - all is fixed. Your opposite end of the image may be unexpectedly over/or underexposed.
- try to rotate around center of the lens - otherwise parallax errors occur (obvious).

Overall - the camera is very easy with sweep panorama mode and gives good looking results.
