Re: 60D manual question - changing exposure and light metering

How do you set light metering while in manual?

I've read my manual and researched online and looked through these forums and can't find a good answer to my question. I know in manual mode you can change aperture, shutter speed and ISO but light metering sees to be unsetable. I want to be able to set it at what I want and to also lock it off so I get consistent exposure when my light isn't changing, such as in a studio environment or a consistently cloudy day. Is there a way to do this in manual mode with the 60D?

Thanks for the help!



The easiest way is I think to press the topbutton (above the lcd) to the right of the iso button. In menu you can do so too press Q button and scroll to the metering icon and go from there.
