    Manual mentions doing so to save power, but does anyone know how to do it?

    When in picture taking mode, simply press the ok button repeatedly to
    cycle through several different display modes. One of them will
    display the LCD for a couple of seconds before turning it off. I think
    this is after 4 oks. This function is mentioned in their other
    cameras manuals, but was left out of the 43wr manual.

    As far as I can figure, the modes are:

    - normal
    - histogram
    - histogram+settings
    - no info
    - LCD off (but will turn on briefly when flash or focus buttons are
    pressed)

    Thanks! I searched the manual and could not find it -- glad to hear I
    was not nuts!

    Have the camera arriving in a couple of days and just have the
    downloaded manual to peruse at this time.
