    Highlight weighted metering on the new GR 3?

    I wonder if any of you here have used this type of metering on other cameras, I see it on Nikon dslr bodies, and how happy you are with it as a metering method. Sounds like ettr solution. Yes? No?

    thanks

    ps. the new GR sounds great on paper. Waiting for real world image quality tests, autofocus improvements, and hell, it's stabilized...

    I use it 75% of the time with my D500, love it! Olympus has it but it doesn't quite work as nicely as the D500 in my experience.

    This new GR looks like a real update vs the GRII but still not enough to make me 'upgrade' from my original GR.

    Highlight metering is not a form of ETTR. How well it works depends on how it is implemented. Indexing metering to the highlights is a bit complex as scene contrast can play a more critical role. It would probably be something to use under certain conditions.

    I have Highlight and Shadow bias modes on my ancient 1984 OM4 and used it on occasions.
    The multispot meter in the OM4 worked very well and I had nearly all of a roll properly exposed using it.
