D700 Noob here,
I've managed to get the thing into some kind of weird mode where only 1 focus point is active in the center of the viewfinder. I've tried various options in the autofocus menu settings, such as the dynamic AF area setting 9, 21, 51, etc... (although I doubt that's the issue because I don't even see an option for 1 - but that's all I've got!) For a brief time it was a single active AF point in the upper left corner...but after reseting everthing I could find, it moved to the center.

What did I do? Up to now the only controls I've been experimenting with are ISO and exposure compensation. I thought I read that there is a feature where you specify a specific focus point to be active, but I can't find it in the manual.

Thanks,
Don
