1. What was the RX100 focused on when you took that pic?

2. Is shooting at that low of ISO necessary? The RX100 shines in it's ability to shoot in higher ISO without noise issues, use that advantage!

This was just in response to my original question comparing the stabilisation of the RX100 lens to other camera. The RX100 was clearly unable to capture a sharp 1/4 sec image, whereas the S95 had no such trouble.

It demonstrates that in such situations the RX100 loses the advantage of its big sensor as it would have to use a much higher shutter speed, and there for much higher ISO, to get a sharp image.

Although in this case, raising the ISO to 125 would not actually degrade the image, as this is the ISO. In practice, you can certainly go to 200 without loss, and probably to 400 before noticing any noise.
