I photograph a lot of low-light sports action--primarily basketball--with my D700, using AF-C, Dynamic AF area (9 point). When I press the shutter release button half-way the perimeter of the focus point momentarily turns red which helps greatly in locating the focus point in the viewfinder. However, it quickly turns black again which makes it difficult, if not impossible, to locate it if I am trying to acquire focus on something dark like player's dark uniform for example. Is there any way to adjust the camera so that the perimeter of the focus point remains red as long as the shutter release button is pressed half-way? If so, it would greatly help in reducing the percentage of my shots that are out-of-focus!
