|Luminance spread||33 cd/m2 (2 standard deviations)|
|Exposure value||–1.45 stops (aim for –2 to –3)|
|Exposure spread||0.16 stops|
|Area used for calculation||0.361 x 0.361|

Focal length: 25 mm (35 mm equivalent)
Exposure compensation: -0.3
The luminance values in cd/m2 are not very reliable, since camera sensitivities can easily differ up to 50% from their nominal value. Typically, the real luminance is 30% lower than this number. The area used for calculation is chosen such that it corresponds to a viewing angle of ±14° horizontally and ±10.5° vertically, which is equivalent to viewing the screen from a distance of about 1.5 times the diagonal size.
Unfortunately, there is a lot of variation in how cameras use EXIF settings. If photos from your camera your produce unusable results, try coming back in a few days. I review submitted pictures regularly and try to fix problems.
