Setting the spot meter on this camera is really quite simple. Go ahead and press the function button, right here in the center to access the function menu. You’ll need to be in the manual mode, the automatic mode does not give you access to the metering option so make sure that manual is selected and then go down to this icon. By default, it’s set to evaluative which means that the entire scene is taken into consideration when the camera judges what the right exposure should be.
If you want you can press the right navigation button to get to center way to an average which is slightly smaller of an area towards the center of the frame and the last option is spot which chooses just a very, very small area right in the center of the frame to choose the proper exposure. Go ahead and press function to escape the menu and you can see there are two brackets surrounding my focusing square if you have a normal size focusing square will be within the focusing square but those two brackets will be there.
As you can see it’s what’s within those brackets that tells the camera the brightness value that the picture should be. So if I go over this dark area you can see that everything gets a lot brighter because I’m exposing just for that area of properly exposed image should be 18% degree so it’s trying to make that very dark area 18% gray.
Likewise if I go over a bright area everything will be much too dark because it’s trying to darken the very bright area to 18% gray. So spot meter is great when you have a back let subject and you want the subject to come out properly exposed and you don’t really care about the background being washed out. But basically that’s how you access the spot meter mode, go ahead and give that a shot, play around with it and see how you like it.
