Re: Is there Multi-spot metering?

Multi-spot metering was an innovation on the OM4 film camera. I rarely used it because when using slide film in tricky light there simply isn't enough latitude to expose for more than one light level and you have to make a decision on which part of the scene is most important to you. Once you start using two or more spot readings you are really back to average metering, albeit with more manual control.

Single spot on the other hand worked remarkably well and I especially appreciated the ability to lock a spot reading into the memory for up to an hour. The OM4Ti remains one of my all time favourite cameras.
