Setting the spot meter is really quite simple. You may want to use the spot meter when you have backlit subjects and you only want the camera to expose for a small area right in the center of the frame. All you need to do is press the quick menu button at the top, access the quick menu, use the right or left navigation buttons or the dial in the front to move across until you get to the metering mode. Go up to choose spot meter then press set and you’ll notice a small plus sign right in the center of the brackets. If you move the focusing brackets the spot meter will move along with them.
Now with the spot meter active I can point the spot meter at something dark and you can see that the entire picture brightens up ‘cause I’m only looking at that very small area in my picture to judge the right amount of light. Likewise, if I pointed at something very bright the entire picture will darken down properly exposing or just that spot.
So again, this is really great for backlit subjects when all you need to have properly expose is the subject itself and you don’t really care so much about what’s going on in the background.
