measure a value for custom white balance using a col-
ored instead of a white object.

Choose how the camera meters exposure when
Intelligent Face Detection is off.
• o MULTI: Automatic scene recognition is used
to adjust exposure for a wide range of shooting
• p SPOT: The camera meters lighting conditions
at the center of the frame. Recommended when
the background is much brighter or darker than
the main subject. Can be used with focus lock
(P 37) to meter off-center subjects.
• q AVERAGE: Exposure is set to the average for
the entire frame. Provides consistent exposure
across multiple shots with the same lighting,
and is particularly effective for landscapes and
portraits of subjects dressed in black or white.
