Re: New TG-5 Shooter!

It depends on the subject.  If shooting macro, you want to expose for the item that you are shooting.  If you are shooting landscapes, the whole area probably should be metered.  But if you find the results disappointing, try single area and see if that improves the overall picture.  You can set the exposure by finding a bright area and half-pressing the shutter which will lock focus and exposure.  You can then recompose the scene.  I think cameras handle under exposure better than over exposure.  So, the underexposed portions of the picture may be useable or correctable in post processing.

There is a middle exposure setting found on some cameras.  It's center-weighted that sort of splits the difference.  But I don't think it is on the TG-5.
