All displays off while outputting via HDMI - Z cameras
2

I'm pretty sure the answer is "No" but am wondering if anyone knows of a way to turn off both the EVF and rear Monitor when the camera is outputting over HDMI. The idea is to save battery life (particularly on the Z50) while Live Streaming over HDMI. The best solution I've been able to find is to use the rear Monitor only and turn the brightness all the way down. I get over two hours per battery on the Z50 and nearly three hours on my Z6 this way (both set to output 1080/30 - when using 4K the time is less). That's adequate for my purposes. But have a friend who's teaching online classes and needs more runtime on her Z50's. The ideal solution is an AC power option but so far none exist for the Z50's.
