  • Survey: Which metering mode do you use?

    Who uses what metering mode for their photography?

    Spot/Partial/Evaluative/Center weighted?? Do you use one for flying aircraft and another for static?

    This thread was started a few months back by another member, but got poor response. I thought maybe I would give it a try again, as I am curious as to what modes people use?

        I guess I should put my own preference in here shouldn't I?

        I prefere center weighted myself......

            You should've made a poll along with this ..

              I know....

              I thought about it after I hit the button to post the thread, but I couldn't see anywhere to add a poll in the editing page.....

              So far: 80% Center, 20% Evaluative (others 0%)

              Any Admins who see this....is there a way to add a poll in here and I am just missing it?
