Pentax MX-1 review – Metering

Of the hundreds of images captured as part of this review, it’s surprisingly difficult to find ones with any serious errors of judgement on the part of the MX-1’s metering system. When capturing scenes with a particularly broad dynamic range, the camera’s tendency is to prioritise the subject over any highlight details. Inevitably, this means some of the brightest details will be lost, but no more than would be expected for a camera with such a sensor.
