This type of display draws there little to no power when the camera is off - basically it is designed such the the liquid crystals state is switched (read changed from white to black) and then its is 'frozen in this state' until the reverse voltage is applied. It changes its crystal orientation (flips 90 degrees) when voltage in one direction is applied and flips back when the opposite voltage is applied. No power is required other than to flip the crystal orientation. Basically the black state the structure of the liquid crystal is perpendicular to a polarizer in the display and the white it is parallel to the polrarizer in the display.
