Default Canon T3i quick question about movie recording

I just purchased a canon t3i but I was wondering when recording a video on the movie mode is there any way to have a timer show up letting me know how long i've been recording my video for? I searched this topic literally for hours but I couldn't seem to find an answer for it.

I really need it to be able to tell me how long i've been recording my video for because I usually try to shoot my videos under 10 minutes.

If there isn't a default option to allow it if I install magic lantern is there an option so I can show the current video recording time? please let me know thank you!!

Welcome to the forum.

As a new member, I am a bit reluctant to suggest you RTFM
p146 has the information you require. The T3i can show elapsed
time or remaining time.

My 500D (T1i) shows remaining time up to a maximum of 29m 59s.
This changes to elapsed time when I press the record button. The
T2i and T3i seem to have similar features.

It looks like the standard firmware can already do what you want.
