Metering

The evaluative metering system of the Lumix DMC-GF5 performs very well, and I rarely had to touch the exposure-compensation dial. When I did, it was largely down to personal preference rather than any fault of the metering.

Images are bright and well exposed, and for trickier subjects centreweighted and spot metering are also available.

Image: Some highlight detail has been lost, as the metering tries to balance the foreground with the bright patch of overcast sky
