    Is there a way to lengthen the period of time live view is open? I know live view eats batteries.

    I don't know the camera but most go to sleep after a period of time and that can be configured. It will be a menu item and probably has a range from 1-5 mins. Live view itself is either on or off on a DSLR, permanently on on a CSC.

    I have cameras set to sleep quite quickly and image review turned off. On my Fuji CSC the camera takes an age to wake up if it has slept so I just turn it off. The on-off switch wakes it more quickly and reliably than the stupid full shutter press it otherwise takes. The DSLRs wake on the slightest touch of the shutter release so essentially stay on the time they are in use.

    Edit - page 100 of the manual configureable between 1 and 10 minutes
