Hi,

This question was prompted by the post entitled "spot metering" where George elaborated on comparing between a spot metered shadow area and a medium gray area.

If I spot meter on a "middle gray" tone, should my analog meter in my N80 be on "0," that is, no +/-? why or why not?

Thanks so much,
Mark
