The three different settings provided for AE Metering, enables you to choose the part of the image the camera should use for measuring brightness and contrast to determine the exposure.
Samples from all parts of the image in the entire screen are reckoned to determine the exposure when this setting is selected.
Center – Weighted
This setting measures brightness and contrast in the central region of the image and decides the exposure.
This works well when the subject image falls in the center of the frame.
A small area only in the center of the screen is reckoned. The subject is to be centered in a spot in the center of the viewfinder. This setting is useful in backlit scenes or when the subject is very dark or light compared to the rest of the scene.
The default setting for Green Mode is Multi-segment Metering.
