This week is the first episode in a four-part series about metering. In this episode, Mark will explain how your camera meters light and uses that to make a correct exposure. In the coming weeks, he will also go over exposure compensation, using a light meter and some advanced light metering tricks - so stay tuned!
In this video, you'll learn about ETTL metering, spot, partial, center-weighted, average, and matrix/evaluative metering. You'll find out the advantages and disadvantages of each.
