Matrix metering

A mode of light metering in which the scene is split up into a matrix of zones which are evaluated individually, instead of concentrating primarily on the center. This method delivers outstanding results under a broad range of conditions, and is the best choice for most situations where you’re using the camera’s automatic features. Matrix (also Multi-Segment or Evaluative) metering offers the best exposure in most circumstances.
