Metering

The matrix metering system of the Nikon 1 J2 performs well in most scenes, needing little exposure compensation. While I automatically applied a negative compensation of -0.3EV or -0.6EV in contrasty scenes, this was rarely necessary, especially with D-Lighting in use. The centreweighted and spot options are handy to have, though, and come in useful for particularly backlit scenes.
