I am considering buying a Sony Alpha a6000. One of the things I like to do is time-lapse, rather long ones, often several thousand pictures long. The specs of the camera say about 300 pics per battery, and one guy claimed to be getting about a thousand. Since I don't have the camera yet I am unclear about a couple of things I may be able to do to get the pics I need.
Can I turn off the lCD screen while shooting?
I understand the camera has in camera charging, can I plug the camera in to a car charger while shooting, and will this be enough to keep up with the cameras discharge? (I did time-lapse on a cell phone (Lumia) that even when plugged in to the car charger it still discharged)
This question is a duplicate, which was posted about a year ago and received no answers, hopefully someone is now around whom can answer this.
