Choosing a Metering Mode

You might want to select a particular metering mode for your first shots, although the default Multi segment metering is probably the best choice as you get to know your camera. Changing metering modes is easy with the Sony Alpha DSLR-A850, because this is one of several options that Sony has wisely provided with its own dedicated controller. Locate the AEL button at the upper-right corner of the LCD screen, and you’ll see a ring that surrounds it, with a small ridge that you can use to turn the ring. This ring and its three options are shown in Figure 1.12.

Figure 1.12. Metering modes (top to bottom) Multi segment, Center weighted, and Spot.
