  1. #1 What is considered runtime? 
    How long the camera is powered on?

    I bought a new SW and powered it on for the first time today for about 15 minutes. Powered it off with battery left on. Cut it back on for a few minutes tonight and it said the runtime was 9.7 hrs. Even though it was powered off, its like it counts time with battery on even if the camera is off.

    Did you check runtime when you first powered it up? Chances are it had several hours of testing before you received it. Runtime is anytime the camera is powered on.

    Ah. I bet that was it. I didn't check the runtime when I first powered it on. I figured all cameras ship with 0 hours. I thought that after testing they would reset hours back to 0 before shipping.

    I would have a hell of a lot more hours clocked on my camera if it counted when the battery was mounted
