Here again are two important tips for 1D Mark IV users:
- Disable ALO (Automatic Lighting Optimisation) and Peripheral Illumination adjustment. Otherwise your RAW images will be underexposed!
- Focus-point linked metering does work when using evaluative metering (Canon do not tell you this, but evaluative metering is biased heavily towards the selected focus point). But unless you disable most of the 45 focus points and just use 19 of them, it does not work when using spot meter, even if you have enabled the focus-point linked spot metering function.
These are two small but important gotchas, wouldn’t you say? I thought they wewre important enough to point out again separately.
