Don't think so. If there's a way, it's not documented anywhere I've seen.

I'd love to be able to disable the stupid thing. I regularly hit it when I'm groping for the focus assist.

Also... be careful reviewing repeatedly. That could cause drop outs.

What about when you remove the tape, reload it and want to find the end again so you end up with continuous time-code, start to end of the tape.

I'm shooting stuff for the archives of HARS I want to fill the 83m tapes up and find I have to cue them some 5 sec before the end of the last shoot. It's a pain but works once you know how.

Cheers.

I am not a fan of the review button what-so-ever. I constantly bump it while setting up shots, a mistake that is far from ideal when filming live events. I would love a menu setting to disable the button. Since it doesn't even show the whole clip anyways...

Just my two cents
