Description

 Multi

None

Multi-pattern metering divides the image into 
sections and measures the light in each section for 
a balanced exposure reading. This type of 
metering provides error-free exposure settings for 
a wide range of shooting conditions.

 Center 

Weighted

Center weighted metering concentrates on the 
center of the focus area to measure light. This type 
of metering is best when you want some level of 
control over contrast.

 Spot

Spot metering takes readings at a very small area. 
Use this metering method when you want 
exposure to be set according to the brightness of a 
particular subject, without being affected by 
surrounding conditions.
