Written by Jakob Jelling

Continued from page 1

Next comesrepparttar center-weighted average metering. This is probablyrepparttar 116091 most common metering method implemented in nearly every digital camera andrepparttar 116092 default for those digital cameras that don't offer metering mode selection. This method averagesrepparttar 116093 exposure ofrepparttar 116094 entire frame but gives extra weight torepparttar 116095 center and is ideal for portraits. Another important isrepparttar 116096 spot or partial metering. The spot metering allowsrepparttar 116097 user to meterrepparttar 116098 subject inrepparttar 116099 center ofrepparttar 116100 frame or on some cameras atrepparttar 116101 selected AF point. Only a small area ofrepparttar 116102 whole frame is metered andrepparttar 116103 exposure ofrepparttar 116104 rest ofrepparttar 116105 frame is ignored. This type of metering is useful for brightly backlit, macro, and moon shots. Again a lot has been revealed and a lot remains to be done so, yetrepparttar 116106 rudimentary foundation of string fundamentals can be established viarepparttar 116107 lines ofrepparttar 116108 above lines of this discussion. It is only hoped thatrepparttar 116109 lines get their true respect fromrepparttar 116110 readers of them and users ofrepparttar 116111 digital camera to properly deliverrepparttar 116112 due respect thatrepparttar 116113 digital camera metering technique deserves.
