Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 II review – Metering

Image: The metering finds a great balance between foreground and skies, with no highlight detail lost

Like most of Sony’s compact cameras the RX100 II has multi-segment, centreweighted and spot metering modes. Across a range of different scenes the metering performed well, much like on the original RX100.

There are 176 different areas that can be selected for spot metering, which gave me great flexibility when shooting high-contrast scenes. In all its metering modes, I found the RX100 II to be very accurate. There is a ±3EV compensation dial but I only needed to alter this for creative control rather than metering correction.
