Chronos User Discussion / Re: Chronos 1.4 Footage Thread

Yeah, its a 400mm f6.3 non-telephoto lens. Being f6.3 makes it only good for very bright sunlight but it is not heavy compared to telephoto lenses so I always keep it in my kit.
Ok, for that kind of Focal Length on that small Sensor, you would propably want a gun sight.
Would be kind of difficult without i guess.
Thanks for the reply.

having a gun sight on the camera makes following a target super easy!

Sounds very interesting. Can you show us what you made there?

The reflex sight is an Amazon special, not the cheapest one but it's not made for a real gun. To mount it I drilled a 1/4" hole in "gun rail" which is used for mounting hardware on to guns, and ground down a 1/4-20 screw to sit as flush as possible with the top of the rail. If the head sticks up too far the sight won't mount properly. There are kits that let you mount gun rail to a hot shoe (camera flash mount) and kits that let you mount a hot shoe to a 1/4-20 hole but the taller your mounting setup the more parallax error you will get and the less stable it will all be.

Every time I shoot the sight has to be adjusted, it moves a little while being transported but mostly it's to account for the range of distances I am shooting that day. By picking a spot midway through the field and centering on that it is pretty accurate as long as I remember to aim high for close subjects and low for distant ones. If you are going to film fast moving subjects it is worth the $30.
What Lens is That?
Looks like 400mm or so?

Wow, thanks a lot for that quick answer.
That is quite some difference.
is it just me, or does the new firmware have a bit of an yellow touch in this one?
Besides of that it looks good to me.

can someone please update his chronos and take a Quick Shot of something with some different colors in frame?
Just the Same Shot with same Settings bevore and after Software Update.
I would just realy like to see how much better colors became with this release, but cant test it on my own because i have no chronos yet.
I never realy liked the colors of Footage from the chronos, but i think colors should be much better now.

I cant wait to see the results.

I am realy happy you found the problem here.

Bin aus der Nähe von Nürnberg, habe aber immer noch keine Chronos.
Wäre Von dem her auch interressiert, wenn sich hier mal Leute treffen würden, die eine Chronos haben.
Berlin ist aber für mich auch etwas weit weg.

Is there someone with the 16 GB Modell, who could verify if the Memory Configuration is 1x 16 GB or 2x 8GB RAM?

Also, if you get your Chronos whith 16 GB already built in, you would only have to buy 1 Stick of 16 GB Ram for Maximum Configuration (32 GB).

Are you sure about that? I'd expect the 16GB models to have two 8GB sticks installed.
ok, never thought about that, but it would be possible that there is 2x 8GB.
After you said that, i am not sure anymore.

I have 2 questions in regards to the RAM upgrade:

1- Can someone please confirm that upgrading to 32Gig means buying 2 x 16Gig Ram ?
...
Also, if you get your Chronos whith 16 GB already built in, you would only have to buy 1 Stick of 16 GB Ram for Maximum Configuration (32 GB).
If you have the 8 GB Modell, then you will get 24 GB if you only add one, or you will have to buy 2x 16 GB for 32 GB total, if you realy need it.

Thanks for confirming that 2 slots are available.

And by the way, do you perhaps know what Ian (in this thread) meant when he said in regards to upgrading to 32Gig:  "Don't forget to go to the appropriate firmware that supports your configuration." ?

Is there a special firmware to download when you install those 32Gig RAM or is it only an option you have to choose in the standard firmware?

regards,
I would guess, that only refers to the newest Firmware, not any special Firmware.
I dont know exactly which one, but in the thread about Firmware you will find it.
There it said about added Features for one of the Versions: Added Support for Memory in all Configurations (or someting like That, look it up if you want to know exactly).
That means if you use any Firmware Newer than that one, you should be fine and it should be supported.
So, just use the Newest one then maybe.

I talked with David via Mail about a HDR-Mode for the Chronos, and he said that there Was one in Developement currently.
Do you know, how far developement has come upon that topic?
Is that HDR-Mode planed to be Released with the next beta or do we have to wait a bit longer for that?

We've still got plans for HDR-Mode, but unfortunately not much more than that at the moment. We are focusing on getting beta 0.3 out the door. An HDR-mode is something us at Krontech would really like to see too. :)
Good to hear this is still up.
I can understand  that you have other, more important Things to do at the moment.
But i am Realy looking forward to this HDR-Mode.

I dont know too much about that topic, but have you ever tried to interrupt that Signal from your device (like with a simple Swich or someting), so the Chronos gets multiple Signals?
Maybe it would take one Shot for every incoming Signal.
If it Works that way, maybe try triggering a Frequency Generator with the Signal of your Device. And then Feed The Chronos with the Signal from your Frequency generator.
Framerate would be Set then via Frequency.
Not sure about that, but maybe worth a try
