Re: Metering modes

There are three metering modes: Digital ESP, Center Weighted Averaging and Spot. DIGITAL ESP - The camera meters and calculates the light levels or light level differences in the center and other areas of the image separately. CENTER WEIGHTED AVERAGING - The metering mode provides the average metering between the subject and the background lighting, placing more weight on the subject at the center. SPOT - The camera meters a very small area around the center of the subject, defined by the spot metering area mark in the viewfinder.

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.

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 exposure mode is the camera set to? You can only change the metering mode in the PSAM modes. The automatic point&shoot modes are automatic for a reason, the camera selects the metering mode and a lot of other things.

Light Meter


Check your metering settings. Are you using centerweighted, matrix, or spot metering? Try setting camera to matrix metering, use program mode 'P' and adjust exposure to default.

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.
