    center weighted is the closest you can get to spot then.
    D3s - (24-70 f/2.8)
    D700 - (14-24 f/2.8)

    Centerweighted metering only takes the middle part to evaluate..
    Thus the word explaining the word, center..

    Spot Metering!
    I usually braket my shots.. which in turn ticks my shutter count too..

    Use different metering mode for different subject and situation. There's no hard and fast rule.

    I think maybe nowadays, more people use DSLR as a Pro looking PnS only.....

    What meter??

    Metering is dependent on what the photographer wants to portray in his artwork (photograph)... and a good photographer would know when to use which metering system. To correctly take a picture that a photographer have in mind and do it within a shot is the most challenging.... but in this digital era, most have second chance to preview and correct on the spot... so lucky for them....

    Hi,

    I was reading this: http://photospot2004.blogspot.com/20...-metering.html and the author mention that if you are using full manual mode, you will not need to bother about metering. Any views about that ? I read up abit about metering am still confuse about it ...

    From my understanding...
    What the author means is when you are in full manual mode, you will have full control for how much you want to expose for what object or what area. There is no use for metering in this case. Exposure is entirely based on your own judgment.
    Simplicity, it is just an encapsulation of complexity.
