When i attempt to select the focus box using the 4-way selector, I keep the shutter pressed halfway but the focus boxes quickly disappear before I can move them with the 4-way selector. I either wind up inadvertently pushing the shutter release too far and activating the shutter or the boxes disappear before I can move them with the 4-way. Thoughts?

You have to be in an exposure mode other that "auto" (green) as auto always forces AF-Area mode "auto"....in AF-Area mode you do not get to choose. Try setting the camera to Aperture priority (A) then AF-Area mode "single". Then half press the shutter and let go (this activates the meter....set your menu c2 to 16sec to give you plenty of time) and now you cam move the 4-way selector and choose the sensor of your choice.

"AF modes" (AF-S, AF-C, and AF-A) are different than "AF-Area modes" as outlined on page 94
