What constitutes high hours on a camera?

I see used cameras offered for sale here and other places. It seems amazing to me that they only have "hundreds" of hours. 120, 320, etc.

I hit a hundred in the first couple of months.

So how many hours have you racked up?

And what do you consider low hours... high hours?

The heads should last for couple of thousand hours, so maybe 1kh+ is highesh.

In amateur & occasional semipro use I had 180h on my DVX100 in 1.5 years. I dod not use it a a deck, have an old TRV900 for that.
