Spot! so can use the zone system;p
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.
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.
