XTR metric to imperial
Posted 24 November 2010 - 08:30 AM
I've recently acquired an early model XTR (pre plus) and the LCD footage counter is set to meters (camera came from Greece).
The manuals and handbook don't mention switching it from metric to 'Merican, so I'm wondering if there's a series if buttons I push? I'm hoping I don't have to switch a board, or report it to INS.

Sorry, I don't have anything serious to contribute to solving the problem. Just learn to count in .3048s if you can't fix it.

As an aside, I've decided not to sell the XTR just so I can break it, just so I can have Bernie service it again. Fantastic work.

1. Power down camera and remove from power supply.
2. Power camera up whilst holding "MAG" button.
3. Still holding "mag" button, push the "run" switch into test mode.
4. Flashing "feet/metres" will come up and you can use "mag" button to choose.
DISCLAIMER: This works for newer XTR's, not sure how backwards-compatible this method is. Maybe give it a try someone?
