Chronos User Discussion / Re: Is Krontech still in business?

I am that much in love with my Chronos 2.1, I need to have the feeling the company building is there if support is needed and also that updates are around! So thank you very much for replying!

I really feel uncomfortable that none of the officials is replying here. Although I already have the Chronos 2.1 here. What, if some minor part breaks? Will this be a total loss then?

I don't understand Krontech. It is obvious that if I would being interested in buying a camera and then stumble upon such a thread in the companies forum discussing whether a company is still in business and this thread is completely ignored by the company, I wouldn't invest some thousands of dollars having the feeling the camera maybe never arrives and the money is just gone.

What's going on at Krontech?

Hello 坦丁,

doooooh, yes! I didn't even think about the cabled side. Sure, the WR1043 would be better, but I have the stuff hanging on a cable-cam system, so thats too heavy. Now I think I will have a software solution maybe, so that H264 will be downloaded via WLAN, in addition I could have a lightweight SSD traveling with the Chronos, to store the CinemaDNG. Best soltuion still would be a WLAN stick, but I don't know how to adjust the cameras Debian to use that.

Thanks a lot!

Hello again! As said here is an update after changing the 2.4Ghz to a 5Ghz device. I now try the TPLink WR902. Unfortunately there is no advantage over the 2.4GHz version, still the CinemaDNG saving framerate is about 2.3 fps, while H264 as suspected still saves at maximum speed.

Does anyone have any idea, why saving DNG is so slow at all and why there is no difference between the 5Ghz and the 2.4Ghz devices?

Thanks! Martin

Ok, nice people at Krontech!

now that I managed to establish the WLAN-connection to my 2.1, I was for the first time trying out the http-based GUI for the camera. I am so overwhelmed how nice and smooth all works and now that I grasp the possibilities by completely controlling the camera not only with this GUI but also with JavaScript, I really have so say this publicly:

THANK YOU! I did not really know, which incredible camera and work I got for my money, and which part I missed until now. Thank you, honestly!

Now I got to dig into the API! Woooohooo!  :)

Hello, thanks again. Finally I made it work with the 2.4Ghz TPLink adapter. If anyone else tries to go ahead with this adapter: It has to be switched to "Access Point"-Mode, not "Router", not "Client". That was my fault.

Now saving speed is like this: about 55fps with H264, so almost full speed, but CinemaDNG is just 2fps. I only needed H264, but nevertheless I will buy the 5GHz adapter and post speed results here, too.

Ok, thank you. I can't make it work with my router, however. Would you please mind telling me, how you access data on the camera? Is the camera mapping a SMB folder on the notebook?

I am using one of these (unavailable) but any wifi router will work. The only advantage to using a portable wifi router is having a self contained battery saves you from carrying an extra power cable.

Thank you very much!
Would you mind telling me how exactly you set up the GIGASTONE router? On camera side you are you mapping a SMB share of a folder of the computer? If so: Is the computer directly connected to the GIGASTONE router or is there another router involved at the computers side? And would you tell me: Are you saving large files, how fast is this?

I once made the network mapping work with a cheap network splitter, connecting both the camera and the computer via Ethernet. Now I bought one of these hoping to plug that into the camera and then replace/avoid the cable to the computer, so to say. But I couldn't make it work yet. I would like to use the SMB share, so the camera automatically safes to a mapped folder of a notebook. Would you suggest it should be possible with the TP-Link?

Since we are now on a debian os.. will a usb wifi stick work in the usb slot of the camera?

That would be a very elegant option, right. But I suppose one had to dig into scripts to map a folder with such device on the camera side, using PuttY or so, right?

Thanks a lot! Would you mind telling me brand and model of your router? To make sure I get a flawlessly working gear?

Was thinking to ask via PN, but maybe someone else wants to know...

Thank you.

Hello nice people,

I'd like to download shots from a 2.1 wirelessly. My idea is to connect a small router to the Ethernet port of the camera, then map a connected folder on a PC, so data would automatically be saved to that.

Do you think this might be possible, or even better, did anyone already try such setup? Or does anyone have any suggestions or annotations to that?

Thanks a lot!

I did some tests with a cable cam today, unfortunately the cable cam is a little bit too slow.

Hello David,

actually I really both had an SD card and a SSD disk connected, but I checked both. ALso, the fact that the files were written with 12fps as cinemadng seems a hint that it was the SSD. It has only one partition. Since it was a real test with no serious data I don't care for the lost files, but I think sort of safety check really would be nice!

Best regards! Martin.

Well, I don't think it's the marker line in cyan (or so), that was visible in former releases. However, I'd like to get rid of it. I'll test again tomorrow, maybe I can find out when it appears and when not.


I have strange color shifts (or so) at the first 6 top lines of my frames coming out of my Chronos 2.1, see attached sample.

Not all of the shots of today have that issue, but some do. Any idea what this might be?

Thanks! Martin

Hello and thanks for the answer. I understand it takes time to implement the "replay" function, but in the new GUI there already is this listbox that will show the files on the media, right? For now it would be great if this listbox at least could show the content of the media, just the list of files, so one could see, if anything has changed. I am now working with the cam with esatap and everything is fine, nevertheless it would be great to have such fundamental optical reassurance... It should be easy to implement such "files on device"-list, no?

Thanks, Martin
