Matrix metering vs center weighted
Feb 26, 2010

Recently I was playing around with my camera , and while in my bedroon took a picture in the P mode using center weighted metering came out underexposed.Just to see the difference metering would make I took the same picture changing only the metering to matrix and the picture came out excelent.By excelent I mean correctly exposed.

I was impressed with the difference that I felt compelled to write this up.I think I know why this is so, but being a beginner at digital Photography I would like you experts out there to explain to me the differences I noticed in exposue.Thank you guys in advance for your answers.
