    When looking in LR 4.4 at a large number of images shot with my RX1 during the last months, I was surprised to see that there was almost no clippings of the highlights in the unprocessed images. Often the most right part of the histogram is still quite a bit away from the right side of the histogram.
    My overall impression is also that the RX1 images are somewhat on the dark side.
    These images are shot in M-mode; AF Flex spot; Metering mode: Multi; Auto ISO (min 100 - max 6400)
    This is not my experience with my Leica M9 in the past, where I had to correct high light clipping quite regularly.

    Does this indicate that I am not enough "exposing to the right"?
    Would this mean that I should permanently select say +2/3 Exposure compensation?

    i find my rx1 tends to darken things up a bit, but i usually just tap the brightness slider a smidge and done!
