[Center Weighted] (F_I): Exposure wilt be calculated based on an average

the calculation will be biased towards the centre

[ISO 80, 100,200, 400, 800, 1600 ] :
You can increase the shutter speed while
the same amount of light is present, by
increasing the ISO sensitivity. However,
the image may be saturated in high luminance.
The higher the ISO value, the higher the camera's sensitivity to
light and therefore the greater its capacity to take pictures in dark
conditions. However, the noise level in the image will increase as
the ISO value increases, making the image appear coarse.
