Description
Matrix
Produces natural results in most situations. Camera uses 420-pixel RGB 
sensor to meter a wide area of the frame and set exposure according to 
tone distribution, color, composition, and, with type G or D lenses 
(0 194), range information (3D color matrix metering II; with other CPU 
lenses, camera uses color matrix metering II, which does not include 3D 
range information).
M
Center-
weighted
Camera meters entire frame but assigns greatest weight to center area. 
Classic meter for portraits; recommended when using filters with an 
exposure factor (filter factor) over 1×.
Spot
Camera meters current focus point; use to meter off-center subjects (if 
Auto-area is selected for AF-area mode as described on page 56, camera 
will meter center focus point). Ensures that subject will be correctly 
exposed, even when background is much brighter or darker.
