I'm in a big debate either to get LX-1 or P4.

Which camera has better picture quality ?

What is the picture quality like in auto mode?

I need to take photo's indoors at hair shows, kids photos and outdoor shots.any opinions on what I should get ?.

I'm not familiar with P4, but I have tried LX1, even with ISO 80 you can notice the noise, especially if you spot on dark blue color :O

The Nikon Coolpix P4 is identical to the P3 except without the WiFi.

Noise is detectable at low IS0s, and the picture starts to seriously deteriorate after ISO 200, especially for night pictures. Outdoor shots should be fine, but the VR mode does not help with the fast nature of kids' photos at all.

Perhaps you should wait for the Canon IXUS 800 IS.
