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.

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 :dunno:

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.

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.

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