Metering
If you cannot obtain suitable exposure conditions, you can change
the metering method to take brighter pictures.
[Multi] ( ) : Exposure will be calculated
based on an average of
the available light in the
image area. However, the
calculation will be biased
towards the center of the
image area. This is suitable
for general use.
[Spot] ( ) : Only the rectangular area in the center of the LCD
monitor will be metered for light. This is suitable
when the subject in the center is exposed correctly,
regardless of the back lighting.
[Center-weighted] ( ) : Exposure will be calculated based on an
average of the available light in the image
area. However, the calculation will be
biased towards the center of the image
area. This is suitable for taking a picture of
small object like a flower or insects.
Ä If the subject is not the center of the focus area, do not use the
spot metering as this may result in an exposure error. In this
circumstance, it is better to use exposure compensation.
