Toggle preview mode during recording session

[ New ]

Is there a way to turn preview mode on/off while recording?  In other words, I want to start recording, then do a quick "spot check" periodically by turning on preview mode to make sure the recording is going OK, then turn preview mode off... all without stopping the recording.  Just trying to maximize battery life, but I want to make sure the recording is good (FOV, nothing obscuring the lens, etc.) every now and then.  As far as I can tell, I have to turn preview mode on, then start recording, but then I can't turn preview off until I stop recording.  Maybe I'm missing something?
