"Focus Select"


Singapore, SG
          

Feeling like an idiot. I have searched through a lot of posts, but I can't find the answer to this.

I used to use to move the focus point on my D70, and D90 (and can still do it on my D90), but I can't make it work on my recently purchased D7000. I turn the Lock switch to the "dot", turn to P, or A, or S, and try to move the curson ring and nothing happens.

It doesn't seem to matter if I have AF-S/AF-C set to Release or Focus. And I have I have the AF Point Illumination set to ON, which also does not seem to be ON all the time, and shows nothing when I try to move the Focus Point.

All of the posts I read just talk about using it for selecting focus.

Am I missing something obvious?
Thanks, Bill

Bill

Press your AF button and turn your front dial to take it out of Auto mode!!!!

Visit Current D90 Set-up.
