Is there a way a fast way to disable HUD, using a console command? I would like to remove it to do better in-game screenshot.

The hud is poorly done. They should of had opacity sliders for each hud item instead of all. I would love to get rid of the compass and leave the crosshairs up but you can't do that because everything is tied to the main slider. So dumb. I hate the fact that you can't shut off the quest arrow indicators. That feature ruins the sense of exploring to find the objective. – user16498 Dec 15 '11 at 5:29

Entering toggleMenus (or just tm) into the console will toggle the HUD's visibility. Beware that it also makes the console invisible!

It works, but the game crashes after few seconds. Do you have this problem too? – Drake Nov 14 '11 at 23:27
I have not. The only issue I had was not realizing that the console window was open but not displaying after entering the command. – Arkive Nov 14 '11 at 23:35

I found the best way to turn off the HUD is to turn the HUD opacity all the way down in the display menu.
