Re: Nikon D90 Metering

The article you read was posted by someone that doesn't fully understand the D90 metering. There's also the potential that you misunderstood the article. I haven't read the article, so I can't say for sure.

If you set it to "spot" metering, it relies very heavily on the individual focus points.

If you set it to "weighted" metering, you can set the diameter for which the metering is weighted.

If you set it to "matrix" metering, it will evaluate the entire scene.

Basically, the D90 (like many cameras) allows for great flexibility in metering. There is no need for a "fix". If someone missuses the settings, unintended results can occur.
