Spot Meter on Canon Rebel XT?

\015 Is there a spot meter on the Rebel XT? If so, how do I use it? My photos are coming out with the subject washed out, but the background looks great. How do I get it to read from the subject's face?Thanks!\015

Answers :

There's a metering mode setting.
from the manual:

(metering mode on first menu1)
evaluative metering - standard setting, takes account off all areas of scene.
Partial metering - effective when background is much brighter than the subject due to backlighting etc.
Centre weighted average metering - the metering is weighted at the centre then averaged for entire scene.
------
pressing the right hand button of the two little ones top right corner of camera brings up display on lcd, using thumb wheel you can select where the metering takes place. in the viewfinder the display lights a red dot for areas selected.

Try these settings to see if this helps in your situation.

I have a Canon Rebel XSi. I'm trying to shoot a photo of my sleeping 2 year old, so the light is obviously low. I have the cameral on manual mode. I used the light meter to obtain my exposure, but when I push the button to take the picture, nothing happens. On the right side of the light meter, there is a blinking green light when I try to take the picture. What am I doing wrong?

I bought digital Canon EOS Rebel XT two years ago, and I have really big problem with AF. I got one half of the pictures fuzzy. Sometimes the green light is on, I took the picture and it is fuzzy. Next shot is fine. I never have this kind of problem with Canon Rebel ( not digital). Now I can't rely on Auto Focus at all. Please explain to me where is a problem. Thanks, Irene
