There are days when I don’t want to think about photography and this is where the RX100 comes in, I grab it when I don’t plan to take pictures. As it usually happens, once I relax I start “seeing things” and miss having a camera on me

Here are a few tips on how to set up you RX100 for street shooting:
1) turn off focus assist light and sound
2) get the fasted SDHC card currently available and shoot raw.
3) output at 10 megapixels instead of 20, unless you print large, this will pay off when the image needs cropping and for high ISO shooting.
4) Center point single shot auto focus, image review off, the speediest way to focus and to “get it”, staying with the wide angle also helps
5)play it safe with shutter speeds (steady shot on) and shoot about 2 stops faster then the focal length selected
for instance, if you are shooting at 28mm, don’t go below 1/125.
6)familiarize yourself totally with all camera controls and practice a steady hand
good luck shooting!
