Sony RX100 User Manual?

I was just notified that my RX100 shipped from Pennsylvania yesterday, July 18, so I'm eager to read the User Manual to get a head start.

But in an online review it was stated that Sony only supplies a small 'getting-started' booklet, and supplies neither a paper nor a CD User manual. Searching the Sony site, I've been unable to find an RX100 User Manual here, either. Is there a User Manual?

Not having a User Manual would be a serious problem for me; it would force me to consider returning the camera.

Re: Sony RX100 User Manual?

So there is a full instruction manual on-line.
how can I print one? It is not convenient to always go on-line when out in the field.
It seems to be a serious flaw in the product that there is no printed detailed instruction manual.... no PDF of it....
For the price of the camera, there should be a detailed pocket manual to carry when shooting.

Hello,
Welcome to the User Discussion Forums as well,
Instructions for printing the Cybershot Users guide can be found here:

There is not a hard copy version included in box or offered separately.

Re: Sony RX100 User Manual?

The questions re the RX100 User Manual are good and the SONY answers are bad.

Yes its true that there is a User's Manual. And, its also true that you can print one or two pages at a time. But, there is no excuse for not having a CD available or at least a PDF so that the whole manual can be studied when away from the computer.

Furthermore, The tutorials and videos that are supposed to be available are generic in nature and do not refer directly to the RX100.

For a camera this expensive and this complex, the least that could have and should have been done is to provide a comprehensive manual. SONY was too quick to get the camera out and too slow to make it usable except in automatic mode!

Re: Sony RX100 User Manual?

Yes, Mod_Sony_ACS_K52S, we need that comprehensive users guide in one printable PDF. It would have been better to include it in the package, but too late now. I thought I figured out how to shut off all the sounds and while taking a photo at a play last night, one of the actors heard the beeps and clicks and gave me the dirtiest look ever.
