Hi guys

Got a D700 finally, and I love it...

Thing is though, I shoot a lote interior with multiple exposures, and I have found out that is doesnt work to do spot metering in Live View. In live view, composing your picture, indeed the "brightness" (exposure) changes when moving the metering spot around, but in the end when taking the pictures, it ends up as if it was metered with.. Matrix metering, is it? That is, using all measure points to decide exposure.. Why is this..? Quite annoying, I hope I've done something wrong... It does say in the manual that you have to enter correct metering mode before entering Live View, but as stated, it doesent seem to matter...
