    Re: Combining AEL with Spot Metering

    That's how I have my EM-5 setup. AEL with spot metering is assigned to fn1.

    When you press the button assigned to AEL do you see the AEL icon appear in the view screen? A green box with AEL in it towards the lower left of the screen.

    You can see the exposure changing in the view screen: if you spot meter on a dark area then a light area you see the change in the view screen.

      I have not been able to see a change in exposure. That is the problem I have. Maybe I have not tried appropriate subjects.

        Possible cause could be, the Live View Boost is switched on (gears D: Disp and scroll down to Live View Boost). I have that switched On when using studio flash, allows me to see with just the modelling lights and switched Off for most other situations. Most importantly, it allows me to see the exposure and effect of any compensation applied. Hope this helps.
