Me­ter­ing pat­teRn

NPhoto - - Special Feature -

By de­fault, your Nikon cam­era uses ma­trix me­ter­ing. This is a multi-zone me­ter­ing pat­tern where the cam­era sep­a­rates the pic­ture into smaller sec­tions, each of which it takes in­di­vid­ual ex­po­sure read­ings from. It then com­pares th­ese read­ings be­fore sug­gest­ing an over­all ex­po­sure. It can some­times be hard to pre­dict how this ‘in­tel­li­gent’ sys­tem will re­act when faced with ex­treme light­ing con­di­tions, but un­der­stand­ing how to read the his­togram will help.
