By the way, how do you expose to the right?
I don´t like the trial/error system, because sometimes there is no time to do it.
After lots of samples, I've adopted the next procedure with my K20D:
1) Set the metering
mode in SPOT.
2) Set the exposure
mode in M
3) Set exposure
compensation to +3 Ev (in steps of 1/2 EV, 1/3 can't reach +3EV).
4) Point the centre of the viewfinder to the brightest light
zone in the scene that I want detailed.
5) Press the GREEN BUTTON, to save the exposure
of the brightest light
6) Then rea-im what I want , and then shoot.
As you can see, the hysto is completely to the right, without clip lights.
If you save this setting in the USER option, you only have to set it in SPOT, USER, point the brightest light
, re-aim, and shoot.
Better than trial/error 2 or 3 times...
Has anybody tried this before?
