 Multi (Multi Metering)

Multi-pattern metering divides the image into 

sections and measures the light in each 

section for a balanced exposure reading. The 

camera automatically determines shooting 

conditions according to the measured lighting pattern, and 

makes exposure settings accordingly. This type of metering 

provides error-free exposure settings for a wide range of 

shooting conditions.

 Center Weighted

Center weighted metering concentrates on the 

center of the focus area to measure light. Use 

this metering method when you want to exert 

some control over exposure, without leaving 

settings totally up to the camera.

 Spot

Spot metering takes readings at a very small 

area. Use this metering method when you 

want exposure to be set according to the 

brightness of a particular subject, without 

being affected by surrounding conditions.
