Sony Cyber-shot HX300 review – Metering

In any one of the manual exposure modes, the metering can be controlled using the spot, centreweighted or multi-segment modes. In the autoexposure modes, metering is determined through auto scene detection. In the dull overcast weather that was consistent throughout this test, exposure usually needed brightening up by around 0.7-1EV when using multi-segment metering. This is good because highlight detail is maintained more often, but given the camera’s limited ability to control noise, underexposure can be an issue for cleaner, noise-free results.
