Head Hours
How do you find and display the head usage hours on the XH-A1?

Chris Hurd August 5th, 2007 07:16 PM

Sorry, not possible with any Canon camcorder.

How many hours ?
Is there any way to find out how many hours XH-A1 has been used ?


Chris Hurd May 16th, 2008 08:47 AM

Sorry, there is no way to access that information on any Canon camcorder.

Keep a count of how many 60 minute tapes you use, multiply by 2 to include capture hours. that should give you a rough idea of how many hours on the heads!

If you use an HV20/30 to capture, then don't multiply by 2.

How to display total hours used?
Hey guys,

How do you display the total hours the camera has been in use on the Canon XH A1? I've been fiddling with the the settings and I'm not able to find it.

Bill Busby June 10th, 2009 03:10 AM

no fiddling will do it. It's not there.

drum hours on XHA1
I'm selling my XHA1. how do i find the drum hours on this camera?

See previous replies.

Cheers Chris. I actually did a search for "drum hours" and ended up on a thread about shooting the drummer in music video.

It's an unfortunate omission on Canon's part, because my camera has had relatively low usage, but i can't prove it.
