With a 20.3-million-pixel APS-C-sized sensor inside a light DSLR-styled body, is the Samsung NX30 the camera to provide competition to the likes of Olympus, Panasonic and Sony? Callum McInerney-Riley find out
Samsung NX30 review – Metering
A 221-segments (17×13-block segment) TTL metering system is featured on the Samsung NX30, with the option of centreweighted, spot and multi-metering selectable from the function menu. A ±3EV exposure-compensation adjustment can also be found in the function menu should users need it adjust the metering of a scene. However, I found that centre, spot and multi provided consistently good exposures in a variety of lighting conditions. Even when I was shooting long exposures at night, the metering performed well, striking a good balance between the highlight and shadow details. For day-to-day shooting, I preferred to use the spot metering. This can be linked with a focus point and positioned by touching an area on the 3in LCD display.
