Maybe after they finally put in the display off/on or backlight off/on/intensity uBASIC commands so you can put in the much needed "energy savings" mode toggle. :)

Yep, and I've understood there's some hope for getting those commands some day too :)

I tried it just now using the display-off button but it appears that MD routine doesn't work with the camera's own display-off feature. :(

Yes, that's because the camera stops updating the viewfinder image when you turn the display off. But you can use the AV-cable method to disable the LCD while still allowing MD to work.

A convenient alternative to the larger AV plug or adapter ... hard plastic + 15 minutes cut, scrape, file, sand and drill.

(Picture was here - vanished due my error!)

Edit: Sorry about the dropped picture! Here it is again:

Or you can just take a shoelace and stick one end to the jack. :]
(Some laces work better than others.)

somehow the picture doesnt load, except when i take that url and load it directly in browser.
but why do you think av plug is large?
takes an old headphone and a knife/scissors and about 1 minute work. :D

PhyrePhox,

" ..... why do you think av plug is large?"

Didn't say large, I said larger.  :P

I needed the head of the plug to project as little as possible and didn't want to work metal. I will reduce the head of this plug even more, as it still gets in my way. (Hand-held shooting.) Previously was using regular plug - OK for tripod.

Sorry about the picture loss! It's back - see above.

Best,

carlos
