    Spot! so can use the zone system
    Now very easy la... just use evaluative den if exposure still off jus use bracketing lor...
    doesnt really matter which type of metering u use unless under extreme lighting like strong backlight or side light...

    Nobody use partial? 0% lei?
    I think Professor Li Yuan said he prefers pertial over evaluative (during his talk at Boon Lay recently)
    I cant vote yet (sigh), but I use evaluative also, unless got back light, then partial or spot.

    Centre Weighted Most of the Time then comes Spot Metering...only when really lazy and I see the scene I am shooting is very "exposure friendly" I would shoot on Matrix mode.

    Depends on what I am taking too, Portrait, streets shot - center weighted, Landscape - Evaluative, dark subject - Partial, then compensate. I think every one have their own liking, no standard rule really

    What's Evaluative and what's Partial metering? Which brand? I guess your question can not be answered by people who have no idea about which brand you use. I think you should have posted this on the subforum of your own brand.

    Otherwise, I use the metering mode which is needed for the shoot. Different depending on the situation and lighting.

    there should never be only one type of metering you use.

    Each type of metering is used for different purposes and situations.

    Often use spot and center weighted if shooting 1 subject the rest if its perspective, etc.

    Yknow something, I don't really know. If it looks like it's been exposed wrongly, instead of changing the metering mode I use exposure compensation. Aha.

    evaluative. if too dark or bright then use exposure compensation.

    I started off manually and spot metering when i first learned how to take pictures with an SLR. Now I still use spot metering habit

    It is useful in an occassion the average reflectance of the scene can be potentially misleading. But most of the usual shots I would think evaluative metering suffice.

    Why not try all 3 in the same shot and see which one gives you your ideal colour reproduction?
