I want to use the back focus button and see various setup videos on YouTube and they conflict with one another. I also cannot find the answer on this forum but my tummy says it is there, I just have not found it. So a direction to that would perhaps solve my question.

I get that the D610 needs to have the AE-L/AF-L button set for AF-ON. That would be f4 on the Controls Menu. That I understand and everyone seems to agree.

My Two questions:
1-Does the camera need to be set to AF-C for Autofocus Continuous?? Some say yes, others do not mention it.

2-If yes to #1, does the Autofocus Menu item a1, or AF-C priority selection, need to be set to Release and not Focus?

Maybe the issue of AF-C versus AF-S depends on the same things as without BBF, but a couple of video were adamant that the AF-C had to be on and the focus mode on the shutter release button off. Others just say the change f4 to AF-ON and it is done.
