Can info be removed from screen in live view ?

I want to use my K5 in live view for a photo booth I am building for a friends wedding. It will be hooked up to a tv and the guests can see themselves before they fire the shot with a cable release. Is there any way the info can be taken off of the screen when in live view in that way ?

Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks so much.

Yes. Got to the recording menu, and under the 4th tab, go to live view. Then, uncheck the "info overlay" option.

Great ! Thank you so much, I totally missed that when going through the menu. It still has the fstop , iso and shutter speed but looks way better than having all of that crap up there.

Thanks again for the help !
