Chronos User Discussion / Re: Introducing Chronos 2.1 HD!
« Last post by Nikon1 on April 17, 2019, 09:00:21 AM »
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 ?
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...
So, here You go:
Just Got around to test the Metabones 0,58x on my Nikon D3300 to test the Coverage of it.
Images are Attatched to the Post.
And no, this wont work with an Stock D3300!
Sorry also for the Crapy image Quality, the Off-Center Image-Circle and all the Shaking and Light-Leaks in the Test-Frame there.
This was An Image Taken By my D3300, From which the Shutter, Mirror and some other stuff i dont needed Was Removed. Basicaly Freelensing on an Camera without any Mount.
Images of that Monster Of an Camera are also Attatched (It is otherwise mostly still an Functional Camera like an Original one).
As you can see, the 0,58x Metabones will not Quite Cover all of the Chronos 2.1 Sensor completely, but most of it. Has still an Impressive Image Circle, if you keep in mind, that it was designed for an sensor even smaller than the one from the Nikon1 (which i use the Speedbooster on).
The not-so-extreme other Speedboosters should cover the Chronos Sensor better i think (never owned an other one...).
The 0,58x is still extremely usefull for the 2.1 though, because you will get tons of Light with that Thing (For stuff like available Light / Low Light-Slow Motion)! F / 1.8 will become f / 1 and F / 1.2 will become F / 0.7 after the speedbooster has done Its thing. Also, you will get some Crazy fast, wide "Lenses" If you combine Certain Lenses with that Speedbooster.
While looking through the List of Image Sensor Formats to calculate the Coverage for this test here, i realized how WIDE the New Chronos Sensor is.
Also, very interresting Format for that Sensor! Its not Quite AS wide, but still surprisingly Similar in size to the Super35mm Film-Format!
Combined with the Image Quality and the RAW this should be Very Interresting option for all sorts of Filmmaking (even if you dont need the Maximum Frame-Rate all the time...).
AND: 19,2x10,8mm @ 1920x1080px means that every pixel will be the size of 1 / 100mm! This could be interresting for all sorts of things, for example 1:1 Macro and all sorts of Digital Measuring and Industrial Stuff!

Maybe you can still change your order, if it isn't shipped already.

Depending on the costs, this would still be a great upgrade instead of an external screen with its own battery.

The 2.1 is  10Ám sized pixels while the 1.4 is 6.6Ám or 34% larger on the 2.1 which is really great. Now the sensor is more advanced which means better noise control which shows in the demo footage and that was not even shot at the final camera specs but in a 4k sensor with 5.0um pixels which are smaller than the Chronos 1.4 6.6um.  So expect a serious low light performance upgrade in the final 2.1. 😉

Have any shots been done on both the 1.4 and 2.1 in similar/identical lighting to show how much increased light sensitivity the new sensor will yield?   I do quite a bit of outdoor shooting where ambient light is the best I can manage in many situations.   Eager to see how the 2.1 improves in this area!

Welp glad I didn't wait 2 more weeks to buy one or I would have got the new one instead of the 1.4 lol.

Our initial tests have shown that the backlight on the new LCD does consume a bit more power than the older unit, but I would expect the difference in runtime to be very small. It's the FPGA and CPU that consumes the lion's share of the power budget. If I had to take a guess, it might reduce your battery life by about 5 minutes or so from a full charge.

well it doesn't necessary mean using MTF lenses on MTF mount. A well design non-electronic controlled MTF mount will give us more options to buy off the shelf adapters to PL - F - and EF which also give chance to speed boost the lens

it's clearly more videographer-friendly and has been done here before on Chronos 1.4:

my adapter to m4/3 speedbooster xl to canon ef works fantastic and can also provide power for lens IS and aperture changes on canon electronic lenses via the usb micro on the speedbooster makes the chronos 100x better in my opinion

yeah, agree this would be a popular upgrade.
do we know yet how the new screen will affect the battery life?

All -
I just ordered and received the previously linked SSD and eSATA cable.  Is there a special incantation that I need to get the drive to be recognized by the camera?

Thanks in advance -
Did you format the drive? If so, what format? The camera supports FAT32, EXT2 and EXT3.
