Multi (6)-Segment Metering
This camera incorporates a high-
precision six-segment TTL
metering system. Light values
are measured in six segments
within the image field, enabling
an optimal exposure to be made
under a variety of lighting
conditions. With conventional
averaged metering systems, underexposure of the subject results from
the brightness of the background affecting the overall metering. With
multi (6)-segment metering, the camera records the brightness in six
zones within the image field and uses these measurements to choose
an exposure that will not underexpose the subject. The multi (6)-
segment metering system also calculates exposure values for a scene
to automatically compensate for high-contrast and other difficult
lighting conditions. Even a beginner can achieve excellent results with
