    Once you turn on camera and leave it on "standby" based on settings screen after some time turns off to save battery which is correct. In case you want to start video recording you have to press shutter button once to "wake up" camera showing picture on the screen and thereafter once again to start recording.
    The same is valid when using RC.
    Is there any setup adjustment to overcome this, to use just one shutter button press to trigger recording, screen can stay even turned off ?

    What is good point when using RC is when screen is "ON", regardless of video or photo mode you are in you can start/stop both type of recordings without any mode switching. For comparison on camera itself when not using RC you have to change mode ie to photo to make a snap.

    About the only option is to add this to the firmware wish list.

    Have put it as proposal for next FW's, to have selectable option with one press of shutter button to start recording/making a snap without waking up a screen.

    Please post that in the SJ7 Firmware Wish list.

    In the meantime you can set the screen blanking time to 30 seconds for any action.
