Metering
Matrix
The camera meters a wide area of the frame and adjusts for
contrast (tone distribution), color, composition, and subject
distance, producing natural results in most situations.
M
Center-
weighted
The camera meters the entire frame but assigns the greatest
weight to the center area.  This is the classic meter for por-
traits and is recommended if you are using filters with an
exposure factor (filter factor) over 1×.
Spot
The camera meters the current focus area; use to meter off-
center subjects (if Auto-area is selected for AF-area mode
as described on page 170, the camera will meter the center
focus area, while during face priority the camera will meter
the focus area closest to the center of the selected face;
0 34).  Spot metering ensures that the subject will be cor-
rectly exposed, even when framed against a background
that is much brighter or darker.
