Re: GoPro HERO5 - Can I turn off the LCD Screen ?

How to implement it? Easiest thing ever - just add one simple option in menu, so it can be used like regular, older GoPro - using front LCD and hardware buttons. Actually it's all mostly there. It looks like someone just forgot about one menu option.
LCD screensaver is the other thing - would be nice to have more delay options as well.

If we want this option, we have to make this thread bigger and send every week a message to Gopro... This is crazy for an outdoor cam to have no way to save the battery !

I'd really love to be able to turn off the screen as well, it eats battery like crazy. Thanks.

Not only the display on drains the battery: using the cam by night to take pictures in a wildlife environment, I have to cover the display to avoid it lights on every time I shot. Please add a "display always off" option asap. Thanks
