Entry from US English dictionary
A mode of automatic light metering in a camera that compensates for differences in the brightness of the central and peripheral portions of the image.
- On the other hand, the results produced by center-weighted metering are very predictable, whereas matrix and evaluative metering modes have complicated algorithms which are harder to predict.
- Other than if you have a specific reason to use center-weighted metering, you're probably better off generally using matrix metering in favour of center-weighted metering.
- Variable center-weighted metering and a choice of five spot meters are available, as are exposure compensation, and auto exposure bracketing.
