Hours on Video Heads?

Just wondering...

I am trying to sell one of my XH A1's on Ebay, and a prospective buyer has asked "how many hours on the video heads?"

Is this something I should know? Is there a place in the camera that tracks this, or is this something that most people just guess? I wouldn't have a clue how to guess how many hours I've used this camera.

Any pointers?

Dave

Hi, David...........

There's no head hours timer on the A1 (or any Canon camera, come to that) so you'll just have to get creative.

Count the tapes in your library and guess.
More important that the camera has been treated well.
