Sony Alpha 7 review – Metering
Image: The Alpha 7’s metering is very dependable, delivering consistently pleasing exposures
The Alpha 7’s 1,200-zone evaluative metering system has been used in numerous Alpha SLT cameras, so it is quite a familiar system and in the main delivers pleasingly accurate results, whether in balanced or more challenging conditions. A handy feature is the Alpha 7’s zebra pattern display, which, while intended more for video use, will provide a quick reference to areas in the frame that may see highlights blown out.
