Used hours tally

Hi,

I have tried to search the forum for an answer but I think the search function is not working at the moment. I've tried from two browsers with no joy. Sorry, then, for asking a question which I suspect has already been asked here before.

I'm interested to know how I can find out how many hours my XM2 has been used for. I can't find anthing obvious in the menus.

Also, is there a recommended frequency for head cleaning and what products are people most happy with?

Thanks in advance.

Ian . . .

Thanks for the link Aaron.

Seems strange that Canon can't or won't allow us access to this info.

Appreciated that heads rolling only accounts for part of wear and tear on the camera but when it comes to buying second hand, for example, it's some reassurance to know the number of hours - like the number of miles on a car.

Oh well . . .

Does anyone have any head cleaning tips?

Thanks.
