Different types of metering modes – Canon XSi

This affects how the camera evaluates the light in a given situation, and consequently what exposure settings your camera recommends.

Evaluative metering – meters the whole scene, the camera automatically sets the meter to suit the entire scene.

Partial metering
– Takes a partial metering of the scene so if your background is much brighter than the subject you can meter just a small area.

Center Weighted – meters the center of the scene and then is averaged for the entire scene.

Spot Metering – meters for only a specific spot of the subject or scene.
