Nikon SLRs offer three metering modes: Matrix, Center-weighted, and Spot. In today's show, we discuss the differences between these modes, how and when to use them, and we offer some tips on getting good exposures with film and digital cameras. In a continuation of our multi-part series on RAW conversion, we take a closer look at Raw Shooter, a product offered in two versions from Pixmantec. Raw Shooter Essentials is a 100% free RAW converter, and does a good job at converting Nikon NEFs. A more full-featured version, Raw Shooter Premium, is available for $89.95 USD.
