Metering

I used a combination of evaluative, centreweighted and spot metering when out shooting on a sunny day in Guildford, and then later on in the day indoors and in the night-time at a music gig. The evaluative metering is reliable, producing accurate results, even in scenes of a wide dynamic range.

Conveniently, the exposure compensation dial is right next to the thumb and instantly accessible for any speedy and necessary alterations. Although the evaluative metering is good, having the exposure compensation dial in such a prominent position on a compact camera body is favourable. In Live View mode there is the option to review the levels on a histogram, and when changing the exposure the histogram adjusts automatically.
