Metering

Whether it be in spot, centreweighted or evaluative mode, the metering system is linked to the active AF points. The evaluative metering mode is both reliable and predictable, which means it is one less thing to think about when taking pictures. For shooting in the iAuto (Intelligent Auto) mode, the exposure settings are controlled by the camera, depending on the scene it recognises. Those who tend to leave the camera in its auto mode will find iAuto reliable for the majority of scenes.
