Setting the Spot Meter is very, very simple. You just want to make sure that you’re in a mode that allows you to set the Spot Meter. Before trying to do so, I usually use the program mode. It’s very versatile and it allows me to control a lot of things as well as allowing me to set those features to automatic if I don’t want to have to set them. So, I use the program mode. And here is your metering button, just press this to access the metering mode and use the dial to move between the different metering options. You have Evaluative, Center Weighted Average and Spot. Spot meter will display two little brackets which indicate the meters position.
So, if I place those brackets over something dark, the image will get much, much brighter and this is great for when I have backlight subjects and I want to expose for the subject as supposed to the extremely bright window for example behind them. So, that is Spot meter. You’ll notice that my square is still highlighted so anytime I move the dial, I’m going to change the metering mode. So, go ahead and press the Metering Mode once again to escape that mode. And now when I turn the dial, it won’t affect the metering mode.
