Setting the Metering Mode on your Canon 50D


This is another setting that you need to understand. I’ve seen people’s cameras set to the wrong metering mode and they hadn’t got a clue.

This will give you all kinds of problems and this video is less about explaining the ‘why’ of metering but the ‘how’. I’ll put another video up soon explaining why you might want to experiment with different settings but for now just set it to evaluative (the one with the dot and brackets) as I explain and leave it there. I want you to recognise the symbol and always check it’s on the right setting, that’s it for now.

Now that wasn’t technical was it 😉
