Sony Alpha 58 review – Metering
Image: The Alpha 58’s 1,200-zone evaluation metering system has coped well with this challenging scene
The Alpha 58’s metering system is very good, and features a choice of multi-segment, centreweighted or spot metering modes, calculated via the camera’s 1,200-zone evaluative metering system. In our tests, the multi-segment metering performed well, exposing well for most scenes, though on occasion in bright situations it did have a slight tendency to underexpose the shot, requiring a touch of exposure compensation to rectify.
