Nikon 20mm f2.8
Nikon 70-300 f4-5.6
H264 Resolve 16
Fijifilm 351 LUT

Really nice. Did you shoot DNG or MP4 for these?

I can try to do that. Usually, upscaling works best with already high enough resolutions, but Iím sure with the right kind of footage and editing, it could look decent.

Do you like Popcorn?

Love popcorn! That was cool to see how the kernel pops up in motion.

2. I saw in the forum there's a thread where the 3D printed C-MTF adapter was shared and seemed to work. The 2.1 sensor is now much bigger than 1.4, which MTF Speedbooster adapter is now working better with the new 2.1 ? the Metabones 0.58x, 0.64x (XL), or 0.71x ?
Well, i did some Crazy stuff with the Metabones 0.58x (i Own that one), and adapted it to an Nikon1 J5, which works Great. So it will also work with the Chronos as Long as Flange distance is considred. But i am Not sure if the 0,58x will cover the Full M3/4 Sensor Format, which the 2.1 has. For the 1.4 Chronos (full sensor Coverage) and filming 720p with the 2.1, it should be fine pretty sure, if you are interrested in Coverage of the 0.58x on the full Sensor of the 2.1 Chronos, i would need to test that, never thought about something like that...
The 0.71x should cover easily the full sensor of the 2.1, but i dont know the 0.64x and what it could do.
For 1" (the Format, i am used to and use) the Metabones 0,58x is quite insane!
1 2/3 Stops more Light! so your 50mm f/1.2 becomes a 29mm f/0.7!
Optical performance is very good!
3. I wish Krontech will provide customer with prebuilt on-camera MTF mount, which sounds right for a MTF sensor camera.
Standard MTF mount will open a lot of possibility for usage of lens and adapters.
"sounds right for a MFT sensor camera"
There are lot of Industry Highspeed-Cameras with MFT-Sensor and CS- or C-Mount. This is quite Common thing to see.
So there is nothing too much Wrong about it beeing a CS-Mount seen from that point of view...
Also there is some Disadvantages about going with a Fixed MFT-Mount:
  • You cant use some of the C-Mount lenses which are Very FAT and need to sit very close to the Mount.
  • You cant use Mount Adapters. Tor the CS-Mount of the Chronos Cameras in combination with those four Thread-Mounting-Points at the Front this means, that you would even Be able to adapt stuff like Sony-E-Mount glass, Nikon Z-Mount Glass, Canon EOS-R- Mount Glass, MFT-Mount Stuff, Nikon1-Mount Stuff, Fuji-x-Mount Glass and a ton of other very crazy stuff via some Interchangeable Mounts
  • If you want to use some VERY short Focal length Lenses (Below 6mm for example...) because you use Fast Framerates (=only small area of the Sensor is actually used= Smaller effective Sensor Size) and still want to go pretty wide, CS-Mount is sometimes your only Option
so, you can Make the CS-Mount Chronos an MFT-Mount Camera with an Interchangeable Mount, but if it was an MFT-Mount to beginn with, you cant use anything with Shorter or simmilar Flange-Distance!
So to fit everyones Needs (Dont forget, that the Chronos 1.4 AND 2.1 is also an VERY interresting Camera for Industry-Applications! Not only Cinema and the Like. Everybody likes good performance for an Fair Price!), the way they gone with the Chronos is actually very smart and the best way to do it.
You are Right, "Native" MFT-Mount will give you a lot of Options for Lenses, but the Chronos has way more Options for Lenses, including EVERYTHING anyone will be ever able to adapt to MFT-Mount!
The thing you miss is propably a high Quality Interchangeable Mount (not one, that screws into the CS-Mount, but one that will use those four Screw-Holes in the Front). Just forget about the CS-Mount, if you dont like it, and think about it, as an Interchangeable-Mount Camera (like for example an RED with interchangeable Mount...), but you cant buy the Mounts yet.
If it helps you anything, i (and a lot of other people) could built an Interchangeable Mount like what you want. Or help You with Building / Printing your own...

Have you tested the 0.58X speedbooster on the Chronos 1.4 and made sure the flange distance is okay? Thank you.

Had my 2.1 for 12hrs now took it into the garden shots some frames. EF to c mount adapter using canon EF lenses. H264 lut applied in resolve. this camera is the real deal, worth the wait.

Wow, these are some really nice shots! Thanks for sharing.

A productive summer with lightning and the 1.4 so far, here are a couple of highlights from St. Louis and Chicago:

Those are some awesome lightning clips. Did you film this with some sort of waterproof case or inside through a window?

I got some quite nice shots on newest press videos This time I used also enough lights and it sure makes a difference.

Cool video! The quality and lowlight on the 2.1 is really beautiful.

Just got the camera in today, and gave it a quick spin, lotís to learn!
Here are a few clips I manage to shoot today.

Nice shots! My fave part was when the water drop fell at the 0:30 mark. What was your frame rate and did you shoot MP4?

Greetings Chronos 1.4 users. Just wanted to share a couple of screen grabs of some 1280 X 1024 files upscaled to 4K (before going through artifact reduction in Vegas Pro and Acrovid) of a hummingbird project I've been working on the last two weeks (video should be up in a week or two). You'll see a before and after zoomed in at 50%, 100 % and 200% respectively (you can click on each pic individually to see the full quality pic) Usually after I upscale, I also do some artifact reduction with Neat Video 5 and Acrovid. Of course the upscales will never compare to something shot in true 4K, but with careful editing and cleanup, you can really bring out and improve the image. I always recommend shooting in DNG if you want the best quality output with less banding. Also, remember these are zoomed in just to illustrate the upscale effect. If you're viewing this from a normal viewing distance, the result is decent.

Yeah, I first process the DNGís and export them to TIFF.

Nice upscaling test! Iíve been having great results with VEAI as well. I should have more up soon this week. Did you shoot DNG or MP4?

I think they're observing Canadian holiday over there and should be back tomorrow. I got an automated email from them on Friday saying they're out on holiday

Just curious. How many hours of battery life are you getting on yours?
