Hi,

How do I turn of the display when using Ultra Intervalometer ?

It uses a lot of unnecessary power.

Thanks.

Current script using:

Hi Albot, you might set the power saver function on your camera to turn the display off, i have my A1100 IS set for 10 seconds and the screen display goes out.  But i also have the SHOOT statements replaced with the PRESS_HALF and PRESS_FULL with a SLEEP statement in between and then use the RELEASE_FULL and RELEASE_HALF statements to complete the "SHOOT".  Good luck with your screen display.

I use my camera with a different card, or with the card in unlocked mode so I get control of the display button to turn off the display. I frame shot in video mode and switch to camera and start shooting. A little low-tech but it works.

Depending on which Canon do you use, you can plug minijack into AV socket (if camera has it). The display turns off, but camera is still on, because it "thinks" that it is connected to external display.
