EOS metering antiquated?
Mar 7, 2004

Why is it that a fev very small highlights can lower the exposure by several stops, still not being able to correctly expose those highligths, wheras the sky, filling 25-30% of the viewfinder, is allowed to be totally blown-out?

I feel less and less confident in the metering system. I might get a light-meter and go back to automatic metering.

(The reason I complain at all has to do with the quick feedback a DSLR can give. With film I wouldn't have thought so much about it.)

This is not an attack on Canon, as I admire the company. In addition, I don't know if any other DSLR does any better.
