Nikon D5300 review – Metering

As mentioned previously, the D5300 has a very capable 2016-pixel metering sensor. In evaluative metering the camera consistently achieved an accurate exposure even when faced with tricky high-contrast scenes. Of course, it’s not infallible, because on occasions areas of highlight detail became burnt out, so I dialled down the exposure compensation to optimise detail for post-production. Also, when using spot metering on a very bright background, some images were a little overexposed. However, for the most part, the camera is extremely accurate.
