Hi, i want to know your opinion on the possibility to add a metering method in the DSLR camera: using the flexibility of the software update, it will be easy to insert a multi spot mean measuring method accessible via menu. This method works in these way: setting the spot metering method the camera get a reading every time you half shot the shooting button and memorize it. After a series of readings (than can be theoretically much but in practice I think 10 are enough ) the camera calculate the mean based on the setted exposition method (P, Av, Tv, ecc.).
You can say: "why you don't calculate it manually?". Ok, but why don't use the power of your camera?


Olympus figured that out for the OM series of their cameras a zillion years ago. Many photographers really appreciated the design, but I guess not enough. I can see uses for it.
