Nikon D7000 Focus Points

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by linda_roina, Nov 12, 2010.

  1. I have the Nikon D7000 with the kit lens attached. Why am I unable to choose various focus points. All I get is 11 points and 39 points. Is it because of the lens?

    Linda, could you please clarify your question?
    Also, try this: set that AF/M switch just below the lens release button to AF. Hold down the button on that switch and turn your main-command dial until it shows AF-A in the top LCD pannel. Once you are in AF-A mode, continue to hold down that AF/M button and rotate the sub-command dial; you can now select among 1 point, 9, 21, 39 and 39-3D modes.
     
  3. i don't have a D7000, but other nikon DSLRs i have used have a switch at the top, right-hand corner of the rear LCD display that locks and unlocks the ability to choose focus points. the switch has a dot and the the letter L -- and you need to choose the dot position to be able to move among focus points. hope this helps.
     
  4. Expanding on what Shun said:
    1. On the bottom left of the camera (when you're holding it like you're about to shoot), there's a AF/M lever with a button on it. Hold that button down. If you turn one command dial it switches AF modes (AF-S, AF-C, AF-A). If you turn the other command dial, it switches AF-Area mode. Turn it until you see a single point on the top right LCD. This switches off AF-Area-Auto mode: you can't select AF points if it's in AF-Area-Auto.
    2. Next to the back LCD, there's a lever with an L/* on the back. It's right under the menu multi selector (under the "OK" button). Turn the lever until you select the dot *. This is the AF-point lock. Obviously you have to have the lock off to move AF-points.
