"Info screen on switch on"


Netanya, IL
          

I've just started playing with my new toy: a D7000. I notice that, whenever I turn the camera on, the rear LCD screen lights up with the "info" screen.
Is this normal or have I already managed to screw up a setting somewhere? And, if the latter, what do I have to do to change back to prevent the LCD switch on.
My spare battery will not be here for a couple of weeks so I am most concerned to save all power possible with two full-day shoots coming up at the end of this week.
MTIAs for any assistance.
Nathan

Glad you found the right MENU option. BTW, I'm finding my D7000 baterry wants to last a LONG time (2,000+ shots before needing a charge). Hope you have the same experience.

Wow - 2,000+ shots from a single battery charge! I suppose it also depends on how one uses the camera. Flash, for example, would run down the battery and, probably, continuously focussing without actually pressing the shutter.
I have given myself some peace of mind and purchased a thingy - they call it a 12V to 230V inverter - for charging household appliances, mobile phones, camera batteries, etc., using the car cigar lighter outlet. I'll find out this weekend how good it is on a two-day photo shoot.

Post-shoot report:
Assuming the percentages shown by the camera as to the state of the battery are accurate, I obtained 1,200 - 1,900 shots per full battery charge, factored up from four "sessions". In retrospect, I could have survived without the inverter but was very glad to have and use it - for the sake of my peace of mind.
