Every camera meter I've ever known has it's idiosyncracies that you have to deal with. They each have situations where they're good at guessing, and different circumstances where they're not so bright.

As much as camera ads say otherwise, meters are just a place to start. You can't expect your camera to know what you want to see, or what you're seeing, anymore than you can expect a car to drive itself because it has an automatic transmission.

Sounds like you are answering something i never asked. I don't expect it to do everything for me - I know how the meter works and why it's there! I'm asking for tips, workaround etc.
