Re: RX100 III - overexposed images?

Having looked at your images again more closely on flickr I found quite a few surprises

Can't tell about the exposure as I don't have the source files however this is what is apparent

Sharpening and noise reduction are really aggressive to the point details are destroyed.

The daisies shot you can't even see a shadow in the white however later on the alpine flowers are fine as they were more shaded

Some of the landscape with rocky mountains are so ragged that look out of focus (would be interesting with the camera shooting a landscape)

There are a few shots were a circuit polariser would really help. nothing to do with the sky but the reflection of the sun on the rocks pushes the camera to destroys blacks and shadows (image with the dog) if you go on mountains with river and snow it is essential to have one to eliminate those reflections

The indoor shots are ok

In short seems like the issue is not overexposure as such but in some cases a bad JPEG processing of the camera. In other cases a circuit polariser would have helped

The colours are also a bit bland again part of a below average JPEG engine

You were shooting in iAuto, you may want to use scenes or maybe shoot program and adjust the image settings as the defaults seem a bit off
