one setting to rule them all ...

Based on your text, I would never, EVER buy an EXR camera such as the XF1 for someone who does not want to change settings. The EXR virtually demands such.

Well, you do know that there are many who enjoy shooting the EXR camera 99% of the time with the simple setting I document on my blog.

P mode
M size
Auto ISO 1600 or 3200 depending on your tolerance for noise

It really is that easy to get great results.

And for those who shoot the X10, XF1 or X-S1, add:

Low sharpen
Low contrast
Default saturation

... and process the JPEGs in Lightroom 4.

Easy peasy ...
