My take on this general issue ever since I bought a brand new Leica R5 at introduction (lotsa years ago) was to shoot in P and shift the program. Yeah, I know, real photographers shoot full M and wannabes shoot A and complete idiots shoot P. ehhhh, not. Shooting in P gives me a floor of sorts on shutter speed and I can keep track of the choices the camera is making and shift aperture/shutter speed to suit my judgment about what I want and what I can get out of an exposure.

In this regard, I do agree that the RX100 seems to be optimistic about minimum shutter speeds, but in its favor the minimalist display is both informative and not too obtrusive, and shifting the program is dead-easy.

Worth a try if you otherwise like the camera?

I am interested, but I don't quite understand P shift. Will you give me some understanding and how to use it please?
