I have been using ISO bracketing in combination with the histogram and the results are stunning. If you own a meter and can shoot a exposure card passing that image into Seconik software or into RawDigger it will give you the actual raw wall you can push the histogram to. Yes the cameras histogram will lie to you as well so will the blinkies.

Having three images with a one stop stop difference using an ISO invariant camera able to record three images from one has its benefits.

Spot metering faces in any light is money no histogram or blinkies or guess can replace the skin tone accurately metered.

Spot metering any specular highlights is often a miss and why 99% of all photographers no matter how accomplished donít really know how to use a spot meter to its fullest potential. Or by now they forgot!
