Is it possible to have the Chronos 1.4 color version film in black and white by adjusting a setting on the camera itself?  Yes, I understand that the color version doesn't have quite the sensitivity or resolution as the monochrome version, just wondering if it is possible.

Chronos User Discussion / Desktop software to playback chronos videos
« on: July 25, 2020, 05:13:17 PM »
I'm a complete newbie with video.  I just shot my first video with my Chronos 1.4.

I'm looking for easy to use desktop software which will playback the videos that I shoot.  I'm not sure how this works since there are many individual files in each of the folders.  So software which maybe allows me to select a folder and then the software will "play" all of the files at a selected speed?

Chronos User Discussion / Static IP Address
« on: July 25, 2020, 08:02:49 AM »
I just received the 1.4 and am playing around with various aspects.  I would like to be able to use the web interface, however, out in the field I will not have an internet connection.

I thought that simply plugging the camera into the network connector of my computer would bring up the web page (after entering an IP address).  However, unlike a router, the IP address provided for the mini USB connection does not work when using a network cable.  Would assigning a static IP address solve this problem?  If so, how does one do that?

Also, has anyone run into the problem of attaching the camera to a computer running Windows 10 via a mini-USB causes Windows 10 to crash.  This has happened five times.  After Windows 10 restarts, the camera can be seen on the web page and operated from there.  However, if the connection is lost or a thumb drive plugged into the camera, Windows immediately crashes again.

With a network cable plugged into a router CONNECTED TO THE INTERNET, there are no crashes and the webpage readily comes up and is connected to the camera.  But I won't have an internet connection in the field.

Thanks for any help.

Chronos User Discussion / Macro Video
« on: July 14, 2020, 08:30:27 PM »
I would like to do some macro work with  the monochrome version of the 1.4 (which I should receive any day now).

Will the following lens work?

computar C-Mount 13-130mm Varifocal Lens

Listings say that it is compatible with 1/2" cameras and uses a C-mount.  I assume the 1/2" is the sensor size, but I'm not sure.


What is the sensor size of the 1.4 Monochrome version?

Chronos User Discussion / Extracting still images
« on: April 25, 2020, 07:15:52 PM »
I am thinking about purchasing a Chronos camera.  I need super slow motion video, but I also need 1 microsecond still images.  I have emailed Sebastian at Kron and he replied as follows:

"I think the best method of extracting a still image from the camera is by saving the file as cinemaDNG.  This will create a folder on your card containing a number of still adobe dng images that can be opened as a single image in your preferred photo post processing software or as a video sequence in your preferred NLE software by importing the whole folder.

One note when saving cinemaDNG files on the camera, they are much more data heavy (h.264 is up to 60Mbps, cinemaDNG is 1258Mbps) and the save time will be much longer.  I recommend using a SSD if you wish to save cinemaDNG files since the transfer rate is much faster than the SD card."

Has anyone tried this?  How good is the resolution of the image.  Another choice I have is to try  to buy a Vela One flash (as low as 0.5 microsecond), but they are not producing flash units at the moment.  I feel confident that the Vela one will provide a very good image, but I thought I should maybe consider the Kron cameras since I would like to have super slo mo video as well.

Any advice is appreciated.  Thanks.
