Metering Modes for Indoor/Outdoor Sports (and a few other things)?
Oct 19, 2012

I always use "center focus" for sports, but am not sure what's the most useful metering mode.  I was originally told to use Center-weighted average for indoor sports and Spot metering for outdoor.  Now it seems like many are suggesting Spot metering for both.

Thanks for any insight and feel free to mention anything about preferred apertures and shooting modes (Av or Tv for example).  I generally go wide open or close to it for indoor sports and it was highly recommended to go with Tv - 1/1000th for outdoor sports, but some also suggest wide open.

Much appreciated.
