Can Nikon P900 do back button focus.?

Hi there.

As im fairly new to the p900, im trying to get into manual mode more each time I use it. I find things a bit fast when trying to shoot moving things like cars, birds in flight etc. (by fast I mean lots to keep an eye on, exposure. iso and shutter speed etc.)

I have seen videos on youtube about back button focus, granted they are aimed at dslr's, and with the p900 not having a af-on button, I was wondering how you guys (and gals) go about focus on moving things.?

At the moment im using the shutter release halfway down to focus and then all the way down to take a picture. I have tried different metering modes, also af-f full time af, and af-s single af.

Any tips on how to do it better would be very nice.
