Metering Methods
Adjust the exposure compensation to a positive value to avoid
making the subject too dark when it is backlit or shot against a
bright background. Adjust the exposure compensation to a negative
value to avoid making the subject too bright in night shots or when
shot against a dark background.
Evaluative
Appropriate for standard shooting conditions,
including backlit scenes. The camera divides images
into several zones for metering. It evaluates complex
lighting conditions, such as the position of the subject,
the brightness, the direct light, and the backlighting,
and adjusts the settings to the correct exposure for
the main subject.

Weighted
Average

Spot

the LCD monitor. Use this setting when you want to set
