I am attempting to understand the more advanced features of the D600 autofocus system for the first time. I seem to have hit a brick wall.
I am trying to set the camera up in AF-C mode ( to shoot moving subjects ) in D9, D21, d39 or D3 modes. To my thinking, either 9, 21 or 39 little focus points should appear in the viewfinder, depending on the mode.
Bottom line is, no matter what setting I have it in ( and I've tried everything ), I can only get a single focus point. That makes sense in AF-S but not in AF-C ??? Am I missing something, maybe a setting in the menu somewhere ?? I have tried everything.
Youe help is much appreciated. Its driving me nuts

What you see through the viewfinder is the main sensor. The surrounding AF sensors still are working - they just don't appear in the viewfinder. It would be too busy with 9, 21 or 39 AF sensor points showing.
Keep in mind the sensor does not just apply to AF - it also applies to metering. The highlighted sensor is weighted more in each metering method.
