The video linked in that post shows it off and calls it that way.

Are you sure it is ETTR and not just a highlight protection mechanism? ETTR means that for a scene with not a lot of dynamic range, e.g. a grey wall, the wall will come out almost white. I do not think Ricoh will implement such a metering mode, because it means everyone would have to adjust their exposure in post-processing.

By the way the Sonys have that for some time now...

The Ricoh certainly doesn't make a gray wall come out while. The metering mode just seems to put more weighting on keeping highlights, not maximizing the exposure.

For example here are two shots of concrete in Program mode with auto ISO:

Matrix metering : ISO100 f4.5 1/320

Highlight Priority metering: ISO100 f5 1/320
