    Hi guys;) I just bought my D7000, before it, I used D5000. I am having problem about setting the focus point. I don't want auto focus (the camera decide where to focus), I want to set my camera to single Focus point (the way I can see a dot and can move to any where in the frame I wish).
    If anyone know how to do the setting, pls share it here, so I can learn from you. THANKS!!!!!!!

    Page 95 of your manual. You press the button on the MF/AF switch, then rotate the front command dial.

    Do they not give these out with the cameras anymore? LOL

    But just as Orions said, pressing the MF/A button on the front of the body and turning the switch changes the focus settings which can be viewed via the upper display. Front and rear dials both control different options, adjust until you get what you want. Which I would recommend AF39-Single point.
