NPhoto - - Special Feature -

Work­ing out the ex­po­sure for a scene of­ten means look­ing at dif­fer­ent ar­eas in­di­vid­u­ally, and that’s where spot me­ter­ing mode is so use­ful. It’s linked to the ac­tive aut­o­fo­cus point, so the sim­plest way to use it is to set the cam­era to sin­gle-point AF mode and choose the cen­tre AF point. Now, with the AF point over your sub­ject, as you ad­just the shut­ter speed and lens aper­ture set­tings, you’ll see the marker move along the ex­po­sure bar. You don’t have to move it to the cen­tre; for in­ten­tion­ally lighter or darker re­sults, you can use an off­set to give you the ex­po­sure you want.
