I want to shoot a 12 hour time lapse video but only have battery which won't last that long if LV is active. Is there a way to disable LV during video shooting to an SD card so I doesn't suck the battery down? I've done some searching but haven't seen an answer.

just tried on my d800; answer is no. turning live view off stops recording, b/c it flips the mirror up. i wonder if screen timeout can be used somehow? So far screen stays on during recording beyond the time it self turns off...
