Re: Metering systems

The C-3030 Zoom has two metering systems: the Digital ESP metering system and the Spot metering system. In the Digital ESP metering system, the center and periphery of the picture composition are separately measured to select the optimal exposure. In the spot metering system, only the center is measured. Therefore, a darker subject can be taken with proper exposure without being affected by backlight, etc.

Has the nikon D40 got an auto setting and what is the metering system


The Auto setting is the green camera symbol on the mode dial. On this setting the camera chooses the metering system (and a lot of other things) automatically.

The metering system is the system in the camera that measures the light and determines the proper exposure. The camera basically gives you three choices: Matrix, Center-weighted, and Spot, but as mentioned earlier, in Auto mode the camera chooses for you.

I have problems focusing my f8000sd fuji camera when zooming in on small things.IIf I try to zoom right in on a butterfly for example,it will not focus and I can't use macro and get closer in case it flies...


Use spot metering & focus when taking pictures of an object.
Set your camera to highest Megapixel setting, Only use max. optical zoom on the subject (do not use digital zoom) .U dont need to get close to object as you can edit/zoom/crop the picture using any photo software program afterwards .

Spot Meter on Canon Rebel XT?


there's a metering mode setting.
from the manual:

(metering mode on first menu1)
evaluative metering - standard setting, takes account off all areas of scene.
Partial metering - effective when background is much brighter than the subject due to backlighting etc.
Centre weighted average metering - the metering is weighted at the centre then averaged for entire scene.
------
pressing the right hand button of the two little ones top right corner of camera brings up display on lcd, using thumb wheel you can select where the metering takes place. in the viewfinder the display lights a red dot for areas selected.

Try these settings to see if this helps in your situation.

What are the flash metering modes?


The DiMAGE A1 employs three metering modes; ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) flash metering, Preflash-TTL metering and Manual. The ADI flash metering mode combines distance information from the autofocusing system with information from a pre-flash exposure. On the other hand, in Preflash -TTL metering mode, the exposure is calculated with a pre-flash only. Flash emission control is manually selectable in three levels from 1/1, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16. Pre-flash TTL metering must be used when a diffuser is attached to an external flash or a filter to the lens. Attachment of those accessories may cause error in distance information necessary for ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) metering due to reduced entering light. While manual output control is active, pre-flash will not burst.

What is the difference in metering among multi-segment, spot, and center-weighted?


Multi-segment metering uses 256 segments to measure luminance and color. This data is combined with distance information to calculate the camera exposure. This advanced metering system will accurate worry-free exposures in almost all situations including backlight condition. Spot metering uses a small circle area within the middle of image to calculate the exposure. The spot allows precise exposure measurements of a particular object without being influenced by extremely bright or dark areas within the scene. Center weighted measures light values over the entire image area with emphasis given in the central region. In backlight condition or when the subject is not in the center of image, exposure compensation will be required.
