Chronos User Discussion / Re: Is Krontech still in business?
« Last post by madscientist on Today at 04:55:08 PM »
To wrap this thread up, I did (finally) get an Email from Krontech several days ago.  Never did get through on the phone but at least I have a bit more confidence that they are in fact operational and that I might be seeing the camera arrive in the next couple of months.

ahh at least it's a known problem :)

Is there likely to be a fix available in a future release?

Chronos User Discussion / Re: Chronos 2.1 - Can't use 800 pixels wide or less

The viewfinder going black is known behaviour when the image sensor is configured with specific resolution and analog gain combos. Thanks for bringing this up, as I don't think we currently document this anywhere, so I'll add it to the new software manual that is in the works right now..

Specific common resolutions where this will occur:
1024 x 768 at or above 18dB
1024 x 576 at or above 18dB
800 x N at or above 12dB
640 x N at or above 12dB

Thomas' suggestion may also apply if the issue persists while the gain is less than 12dB for the above resolutions.

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

I've twigged that this is probably a timezone issue. So how do I tell my Chronos it's not in British Columbia any more ? :)
Go into "util" menu, go to "Factory" Tab, Click into the "Clock" field and type in the time of your timezone, click "Save". Should change the time.

Thanks, but I can only seem to type in 'normal' date/time things in there.

I logged into the camera over SSH and /etc/localtime seems to be set to UTC and the date command gives me the correct time that I set on the UI, so maybe it's not timezone. Something else seems to be going on.

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 shoot TIFF.
Did you work with DNG? So its necessary to convert it for VEAI, isn't it?

Thanks I'll give that a try. It seems to happen only when I have Analogue gain set above 12dB
I tried a bunch of weird resolution / Framerate combinations on my 2.1 as well, and found that Higher framerates/ Smaller resolutions in combination with High gain Settings as well as any Framerate below 38fps/ some Framerates below 55fps will either produce very weird and Glitched Images or just a black screen. I guess thats mostly an Software-issue for example if the Black Calibration process requires a certain number of frames to work propperly, and Frame Readout rate is too low for that, it will try to calibrate with incomplete information resulting in an image with weird looking rows of pixels.
