I'm very disappointed that a camera this sophistocated doesn't include a user's manual.

Came from and amazon review:
ADVANCED guide for RX100 for use online with working search function:
http://esupport.sony.com/docs/dvimag/DSCRX100_guide/en/contents/02/index.html

DOWNLOADABLE PDF of Advanced Guide (but search function doesn't work on this small PDF) - available here:

Found the detailed manual converted to a pdf on another site and it is downloadable and searchable and can be printed - all 200+ pages.

Hi R.,

Sorry to hear of your disappointment. As other respondents have pointed out, you can download the sony DSCRX100_EN_ES.pdf from the net. I've got mine on my desktop for reference.

In the field (I don't know anybody who carries a paper camera manual out on photo shoots) -- if you need help with any command, you can push the "?" button on the lower right of the rear side of the camera.

Otherwise, I have found the menus extremely straightforward and easy to understand -- more so than those on my old NEX 5n.

Next, if you haven't already done so, I highly recommend taking 5-10 minutes to customize the function buttons. Think about which settings you change the most, research them in the user manual, if necessary, then set them to the "Fn" button.

Finally, I highly recommend reading the complete review at dpreview.com, paying close attention to their coverage of menu settings.

Hope this helps.

Keep shooting ~ zkot

Mine came with a printed manual (it was in the box with the warranty) , is a simple manual of 34 pages in English and 34 in Spanish, I'm surprised that other buyers have not get one with theirs.

If you do buy the camera, also buy 'Photographer's Guide to the Sony DSC-RX100' as the manual in the box, and on-line is useless. It is available on Amazon.

Sorry if this comes off as elitist, but the photographers this model is targeted at don't need one. The user manuals are usually pretty terrible anyway. There is onscreen help, and there is google.
