RX10 IV: Power Save conditions?

Hi all,

what are the best Power Save (PwrS) settings to save battery power?

I observed that the Eye Sensor (next to VF) prevents start of PwrS if it is activated (i.e. switching from monitor to VF and vise versa). This may happen easily when carrying the camera near my body - what usually is the case. Is there a solution (disable something)?

Sony states that switching the camera Off/On frequently will consume (extra) power (because lens is moved?)

There may/should be a 'min Pwr down time' such that for shorter Pwr down times there's no saving. The min Pwr down time may be different denpending on how it's entered - by Power OFF switch or by 'Pwr Save Start Time'.

Any clue?


Yes, I will get 2 spare batteries.
