The bottom line with all  this metering is that the aperture and shutter
speed are set for the film speed and light.

All these wonderful metering modes amaze me when all they do is set the
aperture and shutter.

Then there comes Matrix Metering on the new fangled cameras.
Ok, tricky lighting situations and my M*nolta A1 is dead on.
Bright sunlight?  Dead-on.  Shadows?  Dead-on.  It seems to know
when you are taking a picture in bright light and it will always
prevent the meter from under-exposing the scene.


Unless you have a stinking Polorizer or ND filter on the camera.
 The reduction in light level FOOLS the matrix metering into
thinking that you are NOT in bright sunlight.  It seems that the
metering algorithm looks at the maximum EV and determines scene
type from that.  The reduction in light from the polorizer fools
the meter because the maximum EV is not the same as an
unfiltered lens.
