    Re: D800 AF/ M Button Side of Camera

    Just as a follow-up and you all probably know this....in order to get the point options - d9, d21, d51, 3d - focus selection has to be AF-C - not AF-S. This does make sense.

    Glad to hear this resolved your issue. There's a lot to learn with the various setting options so don't be afraid to ask. One time I tried out the 3D tracking - I aimed my lens at a moving stream. That little dot in the viewfinder repeatedly jumped all over! Well...at least I found out it works.

    Have fun and enjoy your D800.

    SuperMod: Interesting you say that. I have for years been shooting only in manual. I recently have become interested in another genre of photography whereby I am trying to focus on a moving object. Hence, trying to find AF-C. I'm sure I'll be heading to the forum a lot in trying to learn all about auto-focus. Didn't realize there was so much to it!
