Basic Operation

Shooting with the Lens Set on "A" Mark.

How to Use the Metering Mode  

1. Center-weighted average metering

This is the normal setting position used for general photography, and is recommended especially for AE photography.

2. Partial metering

With this metering system, the AE lock mechanism is on as long as the shutter button is being pressed halfway down.

1 ) Put the main subject in the center of the viewfinder so that the partial metering mark covers it

2) Press the shutter button halfway and compose the picture. A red "*" mark (AE lock LED) will then appear in the viewfinder.

If desired, while continuing to hold down the shutter button, recompose the picture so that the subject is not in the center. The same exposure value is kept locked in the camera's memory by the AE lock function even when the picture is recomposed.

<Sequential AE lock photography>


When shooting continuously using the AE lock mechanism in the same lighting conditions (e.g. backlit subjects), it is not necessary to meter the subject for each shot as long as you keep the shutter button pressed halfway down between exposures.
