I hope to get a D810 in the next few days.
I generally shoot by setting the camera to use 1 active central focus point in the viewfinder. When I see a subject I wish to photograph I place that point on the subject and press the release down 1/2 way to freeze the point of focus and expose and then I re-compose and release the shutter. I know this is somewhat of an archaic technique but it come from many years with MF film cameras with auto nothing.

How do I set my D810 to one central active focus point ( can I set it to beep and light up when focus is confirmed? ) so that on a 1/2 press both the exposure and point of focus are locked?

Also how do I turn auto ISO OFF?

Thanks... A lot of setting on these puppies!
