Re: When does exposure metering occur?

Hi Mike

Before I press the shutter button I press the back button focus. When I press the back button focus an exposure appears in the viewfinder. Is this the exposure that will be used for the shot? Later when I press the shutter button an exposure appears in the viewfinder. Is this the exposure that will be used for the shot? Are the two displayed exposures the same?

thanks, Bernie
