Yes using Flexizone.you have to postion the focus frame where you want it and you can also resize it.
For Focus Lock I think you left out a step, pressing the little arrow...

Thanks John. Interesting use of MF, but way too many adjustments to make a shot in anything approaching real time. With the SX40 in FlexiZone, all I have to do is pick my focus, hold the shutter button halfway down, then move the camera to compose the shot. The AF frame stays on my original focus. Per the manual, this should work just the same with the SX60. If it doesn't work as advertised, I won't be a happy camper.

Flexizone works that way with my SX50 also, hold the shutter button halfway down and recompose the image but only in P, Tv, Av or M shooting modes everything else will be center focus

This is embarassing, and maybe I'm misremembering how FlexiZone recomposition works. In FlexiZone, when I focus on my subject, the AF frame turns green. As I move the camera to recompose the scene, does the greeen AF frame stay on the subject, or does it stay in the center? In my memory, it should stay on the subject. If I'm misremembering, and the AF frame always stays in the center, then FlexiZone recomposition may be working as it should.

In FlexiZone you have to move the focus bracket to where you want it, it will not move by itself.
Compose your picture
Move the focus bracket over the area of interest
Hold the shutter button halfway down, the bracket should turn green when it is focus locked
