I like to 'park' my 5R on the black display option until I'm ready for the next shot. It saves, I was told, about 95% of the battery drain.

LCD current draw is down to the backlight which is on regardless of what is displayed - whether a pixel appears black or white makes no difference to the current draw. So while the screen is on it makes no difference what is displayed. However the backlight brightness setting will obviously make a big difference.
