Evaluative
Appropriate for standard shooting conditions, 
including backlit scenes. The camera divides 
images into several zones for 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 
Avg.
Averages the light metered from the entire 
frame, but gives greater weight to the subject 
matter at the center.
Spot
Use when there is a large variance in brightness 
between the subject and the surroundings. Sets 
the exposure to suit the subject at the center of 
the composition.
