Chronos User Discussion / Help with 16 BIT RAW
« Last post by Chrisser on January 18, 2020, 04:48:42 PM »
Hello all,

I shot a test on a 1.4 and saved as 16 bit RAW. Nothing in my arsenal of software will play it back. Do I need to convert to Cinema DNG first?

Thanks !

I see that the 2.1HD is now listed as "If you buy one unit today. expect to receive it by April 2020." - Does this apply if I ordered it last year? I'm guessing so, sadly.

It's best to contact for general and sales inquiries.

So I finally got around to test this version after all the end of year madness, and have to report that it works very well.  I had an initial scare when I updated and all that was shown was a color chart with a lower right noise snow screen and nothing happened.   I promptly forced reboot and all was normal, with interface loading.

Black calibration worked fine and I find that it does a better job than before "Could be my eyes deceiving but could be better banding elimination algo" Or the changelog feature: (Automatic ADC calibration during black calibration, which should reduce column banding across a wider temperature range.)

The most annoying bug from the RC2 which was peaking making the camera crawl on an external HDMI monitor is gone and it works perfectly with no slow down or lock-up.   I recorded about 7 clips and no lockups which were a common thing in the last RC. I will have to test for longer standby and rec times but so far very stable.

I can't wait for the new standard UI to start rolling out to see a larger screen preview along with the info.  Great work team!


Chronos User Discussion / Re: Chronos Ring and ethernet support.

Today i came Across the Whole Light-Field-Camera thing again after Years, and it got me wondering, if anyone at Krontech ever thought about using that array of camers you use for the Ring, but all pointed in the Same Direction.
I doubt this was Ever done with Highspeed-Cameras?
Some Years ago i came across an Article with images where some institute used an array of 7-20 (dont Remember exactly) matched Super Tele-Lenses and Cameras for some Deep-Space Light-Field Imaging on some Star-Tracking mount.
However, anything needed for some kind of similar Setup (maybe not for Astro-Imaging...) for Highspeed with an Chronos-Array would just be what you allready have developed for the Ring, but just a different Mounting System for the Actual Cameras, to point all in the Same Direction...
Processing for an Final image would be done in Software in Post using a Frame from Each Camera taken At the Same point in time. Software for something like This should allready exist somewhere?
Just as an Idea for you guys. Not that i would be in Need for something like this, but it would pretty sure be a worlds first for this with pretty low Effort for you, since you allready have all the Hardware (well not yet for Mounting..) and Software!

Hello Michael,

I have been checking eBay and craigslist for awhile now and I can't even find a completed auction on ebay for a Chronos.  There seems to be very hard to find in a used condition. 

If you find any listings that I am unaware of, please let me know.  Thanks.
Chronos User Discussion / mSATA USB Enclosure, not recognized.
« Last post by nik282000 on January 02, 2020, 03:36:12 PM »
I had an mSATA drive laying around and I thought I might get better saving speeds from my Chronos. When I plug the drive in it is not recognized by the camera. All of my conventional USB drives are recognized just fine (from 16gb to 128gb in size).

The Chronos is running the latest firmware v0.3.2-patch1. The drive is an mSATA, Samsung 860 EVO, 250gb. The enclosure is an HD6011-1s (Amazon, eBay, Alli), its based around the JMS578  USB 3.0 to SATA 6.0Gb/s Bridge Controller.

I tried formatting the drive to both FAT32 and EXT3, I also tried making the partition smaller (120gb) with the same results.

If anyone has any ideas as to what I can test or check next I would very much appreciate it.
Chronos User Discussion / Re: Upgrading the 1.4 to the 2.1

Any update?

I was wondering too.  I signed up for the newsletter and received a confirmation message but nothing since.  I have plans for a shoot later this year and it would be nice to know if the upgrade would be available, how long it takes, costs, etc.

"...In the coming Month....":

Hi Jacob,

We are going to be rolling out a trade in program in the coming months which will introduce used cameras into our selection. Do keep an eye out for this on our forum and social media as we will be announcing it there. You may also send us an email to for a quicker reply.

Unless you need a used camera right away, I would suggest checking eBay or Craigslist :)
