Metering
The metering mode refers to the method the camera measures the quantity of light. 
The camera measures the amount of light in a scene, and in many of its modes, uses the 
measurement to adjust various settings. For example, if a subject looks darker than its actual 
colour, the camera takes an overexposed photo of it. If a subject looks lighter than its actual 
colour, the camera takes an underexposed photo of it.
Tap MODE 
→ Expert → PAS, or M to access one of the expert modes.
In expert mode, tap   
→   → Metering, and then select an option.
•  Multi: The camera calculates the amount of light in multiple areas. When light is sufficient 
or insufficient, the camera adjusts the exposure by averaging the overall brightness of the 
scene. This mode is suitable for general photos.
•  Spot: The camera calculates the amount of light in the centre. When you take a photo 
in conditions where there is a strong backlight behind a subject, the camera adjusts the 
exposure to shoot a subject correctly.
•  Centre-weighted: The camera calculates a broader area than the camera does in spot 
mode. It sums up the amount of light in the centre portion of the shot (60–80 %) and that 
of the rest of the shot (20–40 %).
Drive mode
Use this option to set the shooting method. Continuous shots are recommended for shooting 
the rapid motion of fast moving subjects, such as racing cars.

•  Single shot: Use this to take a single photo.
•  Continuous shot: Use this to take a series of photos of moving subjects.
•  AE BKT: Use the auto exposure bracketing option to take 3 consecutive photos with 
different exposure values (one a step lighter, the original, and one a step darker). Use 
a tripod to prevent blurry photos. You can adjust the interval range in AE Bracket set.
