Information About reflective meter

A reflective meter measures how much light is being bounced off the subject you're photographing and into the camera's lens; many modern cameras have this meter built-in. In some cameras, it's the small window next to the lens and viewfinder that your owner's manual told you that you shouldn't cover with your thumb; more sophisticated cameras have the reflective meter built in behind the lens (a mirror swings out of the way when you take the picture). Usually the meter sets your shutter speed and aperture automatically according to the readings it takes, but you also can turn off your camera's reflective meter, point a handheld incident meter at your subject and take a reading, using your incident meter is a reflective meter.
