In order to change the metering mode with this camera you have to be using one of the creative modes, which means tuning your mode dial to either P, TV, AV, M or automatic deplafield.

By default, the mutterings is up to evaluative muttering which means the camera is looking at the entire scene to select the proper shatter speed and aperture for a well-exposed image. If I go down to aperture mutterings and looking at the smaller portion of the screen in the center.
If I go down to a spot meter, it is looking at a much smaller spot, right in the center of the screen and this is great for back lights subjects or a very small subjects that you want to have well exposed and do not really care about the rest of the picture.
