The ABC of Photography – Centre-weighted

Centre-weighted

A type of built-in metering system provided as an option on some cameras. Center-weighted meters measure light intensity across the entire image area but bias the average in favor of light taken toward the center of the frame. The system isn’t foolproof; it’s easier to predict when it will make an inappropriate reading than more sophisticated metering systems.
