Default SPOT or iESP ?

Can someone please explain what they are and the differences or point me in the right direction (url) to find out.


Much appreciated

iESP uses the centre and surrounding areas of a scene. Sort of averaging I guess. And spot concentrates on using just the central part of the scene to calculate the exposure setting. The latter being more accurate if you are careful with picking the area you want to base your exposure on. Or focus.
It's all in the user manual I'm sure.

David

Hmm thanks for that.. Now wondering the best to use. I ask because I have a slight problem

Shooting from a distance I have two subject taking up most of the shot. One on right seems well focused while one on left isnt as well focused.. They both seem to be the same distance from me side by side (or right good left not as good sometines) and I wondered if using iESP as I am set on was the problem ?

The photo you gave as an example appears to be properly exposed. I suspect that the reason the subject on the left and the person behind him are blurred is that your shutter speed was a little too slow and that they were moving.

Yes they where walking. just seemed odd that at same distance one would be more in focus... guess its the newbie in me being a little too picky then
