HV20 or HV30 and index marks?

Can you search for index marks with these cameras?

Thanks,
Scott

Scott, there is no reference to this in either manual. It appears that "zero set memory" is the nearest you'll get.

The Canons usually have "Date search", which will fast-scan back/fwd (w/ playback) looking for a date change, eg from the automatically-recorded "time of shooting" metadata in the stream. Close enough to index? (still pretty slow to fast-scan, but... works...) Note, normally only accessible on the remote control.

The HV10 has this, 20 & 30 should also, check the manual...

Right on, Colin. HV30 NTSC manual p32:
