Great score on a really nice camera.

Just curious, do you read Japanese?

And if no, how are you going to manage getting around the menus?

BTW: mine has "smile" and "blink" detection. Check it out on yours.

Enjoy your new RX100, I do.


Thanks, Lee. I'm enjoying the camera so far! I do read Japanese well enough to navigate the menus, otherwise I'd never have bought it even at this price -- there's just too much functionality and customization buried in the menus on this camera to try and get by without them. But it would certainly be nice if somebody eventually hacks the firmware on this camera (as has been done for many Panasonic cameras) to at least allow unlocking the other languages.
