Re: Sony RX100 - What do you love and hate about your camera?

I am recently returned from two months hiking across northern Spain on the Camino de Santiago, over 500 miles. Over 3000 pictures later I can say that the Sony RX100 is an excellent compact camera for my needs. The IQ was exceptional in a wide variety of interior and outside settings with landscapes and people. The camera primarily functioned in the Program+ and manual modes, was in and out of my pocket and turned on and off frequently. I did add a hand grip and used the wrist strap. Without these the camera wanted to slip our of my hand. In the future I will carry and use a monopod. On two occasions the RX100 froze up while shooting, would not close. I removed and reinstalled the battery and the camera returned to functioning properly. Movies are of good quality. Little post-processing in Lightroom is needed to cleanup images. Recently, I presented a 20 minute program of the photos to a group and received positive comments about the quality of the images. Originally, I purchased a Canon S100 to use on this trip but it soon developed focusing problems and was returned. Before I had used a number of the Canon G series, liked then but wanted something smaller and lighter. The RX100 served me well well under moderately adverse outdoor conditions of cold, heat, and rain. I agree with much said in the other posts and want Sony to upgrade its firmware to improve the RX100 functioning. It is an excellent camera imo.
