Hour meter?

Does anyone know if the A1 has an hour meter buried in its menu somewhere?


Much thanks from a noob,
Doug D.

Sadly, no. There's no known way for us to read the number of hours on an XH camcorder. I say "no known way for us" because the factory service technicians can access that information. But we can't.

Chris- would you happen to know if the camera records the "transport use" time or some sort of "on" time?

I know only Canon tech can view this info- but what "time" is recorded?

I have no idea, Steve. They're probably using a Sony RM-95 to access that info but the exact particulars of what and how are completely unknown to me.
