center-weighted

Refers to a camera’s exposure meter mode in which reflected light in the center of the view frame is measured so that it has more influence on the exposure reading than light at the edges, generally 60 to 80% more. Some cameras permit the photographer to adjust the size of the central area so that more or less light at the center is measured.
