I use both if using Auto. Intelligent is supposed to assess what you are trying to shoot and be a bit smarter over choosing settings, it does actually work pretty well. But Superior is pretty good for general stuff. If shooting night or fireworks use the SCN selection and choose the appropriate mode there... lots of other useful modes as well for night shots, macro, sunsets and so on.

If in doubt ask here of course or for quicker answers ...sometimes ......just Google it.

This is a good book.... a proper manual if you like. You can Kindle it as well onto you Kindle or iPad

I'm still using the original RX100 - still going strong after almost 3 years of use. I keep to default settings on everything except image quality which is RAW (default is normal jpeg). iAuto is fine for snaps and tbh what the camera lives on for me. Even though the sensor is bigger than other compacts it's still comparatively small so far better in low light but you still don't get the creative control over depth of field you would have with a larger sensored camera.

£259 (with £30 rebate) and two year warranty is a great deal. I paid £484 in September 2012!!
