I can set my metering, but every time the camera shuts off it goes back to "evaluative".  Is there a way to lock the settings so that spot metering can stay on until I change it?

Re: SX260

Hi JackieL.


I have the same issue with the SX150 and the G12, although if I leave the cameras in center weighted metering, that seems to stay even after the camera is turned off and back on.At least with the G12 I have two custom setups that I can set to have my most used settings. Pretty frustrating because my old A510 holds the spot metering just fine.


If I come across a solution I'll be sure to let you know.

Hi JackieL,


This is normal for this camera.  The PowerShot SX260 HS does not retain the metering settings when you turn it off.
