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.

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.

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.
