Chronos User Discussion / Re: Chronos 1.4 screen upgrade?

Our initial tests have shown that the backlight on the new LCD does consume a bit more power than the older unit, but I would expect the difference in runtime to be very small. It's the FPGA and CPU that consumes the lion's share of the power budget. If I had to take a guess, it might reduce your battery life by about 5 minutes or so from a full charge.
sounds great!

well it doesn't necessary mean using MTF lenses on MTF mount. A well design non-electronic controlled MTF mount will give us more options to buy off the shelf adapters to PL - F - and EF which also give chance to speed boost the lens

it's clearly more videographer-friendly and has been done here before on Chronos 1.4:

my adapter to m4/3 speedbooster xl to canon ef works fantastic and can also provide power for lens IS and aperture changes on canon electronic lenses via the usb micro on the speedbooster makes the chronos 100x better in my opinion

yeah, agree this would be a popular upgrade.
do we know yet how the new screen will affect the battery life?

@cornflakes are there going to be any improvements to the speed of saving to the sd card? like using a fast sdxc and saving much quicker?
there is going to be larger files with the new one and its already really slow on the current camera.
this is my number one concern in the waterhousing, i pre ordered the camera but need to know about saving.
everthing else looks good sensor size and brighter screen and more res

Is there something else missing from the CinemaDNG tags? Even Photoshop cannot open the files. No previews in macOS.
I'm having no trouble with the new beta 9 and Photoshop CS5 now.
TIFF files open with no issues. CinemaDNG does not open in Davinci Resolve or in Photoshop CC 2019. Even Lightroom CC 2015 does not want them.

And yes I'm using beta 9.

Could you upload a problem DNG file here so we can investigate?

Have the same problem... I can't open the .dng from the camera... not with lightroom, not with photoshop... with nothing :( attached one dng
try the new v9 beta i think thats fixed now

getting erratic behavior with the hdmi, usually doesnt work(just black feed) until i record a clip then go to playback, then it starts giving a video feed other than black pixels
Stoked to have it and see if it can get more reliable, using 502 bright small hd monitor, great to have this option thanks!

getting freezing about 6 times so far when saving in playback, with monitor plugged in, havent tried with out monitor, both in h264 but more in cinema dng, seemed like i only got sucesssful save in super short raw cinema dng clips,  camera becomes frozen and requires restart power cycle,
thats it so far will test more

take a look at the image issues on high contrast moving water with the new firmware, pretty funky stuff going on, can this be worked on?
focus still off its biased too close

on my 6 or 7th memory stick and several tries per stick finally got it to 3.9, wow that was harder than expected but now got it, into the waterhousing it goes!

the updatescript is not that complicated, you could maybe put the required files on a working sd card and then connect to the camera via ssh. From there on you could manually update things from the sd card without the cam software.
not that complicated is relative, haha. whats a ssh? im not a computer guy

Can you successfully save video to those USB drives on the camera?
any ideas, still stuck

Yeah it saves onto memory stick

Can you successfully save video to those USB drives on the camera?
i have never tried to save to usb drive, but i can try now, i always used sd card
