Metering
Appropriate for standard shooting conditions, 
including backlit scenes. The camera divides images 
into several zones for light metering. It evaluates 
complex lighting conditions, such as the position of 
the subject, the brightness, the direct light, and the 
backlighting, and adjusts the settings to the correct 
exposure for the main subject.
Center-
Weighted 
Averaging
Averages the light metered from the entire frame, 
but gives greater weight to the subject matter at the 
center.
Spot AE Point
Meters the area within the spot AE point at the center 
of the LCD monitor. Use this mode when the subject 
is backlit or surrounded by strong light.
