View Full Version : kodak z730: spot metering in manual mode

09-01-2005, 07:16 PM
I have a kodak z730 (4x, 5MP), similar to dx7440. I can apparently set spot metering from the menu in all modes, but the spot metering circle shows in the center of the LCD in all modes except full manual. But reviewing the picture taken in full manual claims that spot metering was on.

Does anyone know if spot metering is indeed active in full manual mode, even though the spot metering region doesn't show in the LCD? I wanted to use this to get spot metering information from the EV display, which in manual mode apparently indicates the acutal EV for the chosen aperture, shutter speed, and ISO.
