I think the penny has just dropped on how the exposure metering works on the Xacti (and any camera)

Ill try a similar shot soon when there are similar condition and try the various exposure settings!

for your pictures, you may want to do HDR images.

Do a search for gimp and HDR.

GImp is a GTK for linux application. BUt you can run the GTK libraries under windows with GIMP. adobe photoshop can also do HDR. There are also tons of tutorials based on psudo HDR and the results are fabulous.

Thanks for the reply.

I have achieved HDR results in the past but cant remember how I achieved it now!

I have tried using the spot metering method on the Xacti camera but assumed that I could move that spot/box/cursor around the viewfinder to select which part of the photo I want to expose for!

It just sits there in the middle. Any ideas on how spot metering works on the HD1010?

Many Thanks.
