Default LCD Screen or EVF>?

Anyone know with relative certainty if either consumes less battery then the other? My S7000 is a bit of a battery hog so anything that helps conserve a few shots is worthwhile... I aasume the EVF would consume less battery but then again who knows.... Anyone with an educated opinion on the matter?

The EVF uses only a little less power than the LCD. The S7000 has some known CF card issues that cause it to drain batteries even when it is turned off. See this page:

Thanks for chiming in Steve I read about that issue and my cam doesnt suffer from that specific issue but it consumes a lot of battery nonetheless especially with LCD & flash use.

BTW: The site is great! Ive been here for over a year and still cant thank you enough for the level of granularity you provide in your reviews and the fact that you are an active contributor in the discussion forums. Great job if nobody else gave you a pat on the back today heres one from me !!
