Chronos User Discussion / Re: Question about Shutter Speed
« Last post by Nikon1 on December 06, 2018, 11:35:44 AM »
If there is such a legal speed limitation, it would most likely be due to ITAR. For example, thermal (IR) cameras are limited to be below 10 fps and/or 640 x 480 px to be exempt of ITAR regulations. So if you see any IR camera above those limits, the manufacturer got a specific permit from the US government to do so and the sales are very likely restricted to certain regions and so on.
Now you might say what hast this to do with equipment coming from spaces other than the US? Well they just claim world wide jurisdiction...

I did not search for ITAR regulations regarding regular high-speed cameras, and honestly I don't want to dig into that rabbit-hole ;)
Ok, thats good to know.
I always wondered why those IR-Cameras always just had such crappy resolution and framerate....even nowerdays....
That explains a lot.

As far as i know, there is an Limitation on ANY Highspeed-Camera out there in the whole market, that the fastest shutterspeed must not be shorter than 1us.
There is some kind of limitation, and i was always interrested why that is... If it goes slightly faster than that on some of the Presets, i think its still kind of borderline ok for that.
If you want faster Shutterspeed, you need some kind of special permission and a good reason, why you would even need to have such a camera... (or just hack /Modify the firmware on your own...?)
.
Please dont quote me on that, this is just from what i heard other people say and as good as i could remember, i never did the acutal research myself.
.
I think ive seen someone of the Kron-Staff say here in the forum, that the chronos Camera itself ist capeable of way shorter/faster shutterspeeds per frame, but it is not enabled due to this (legal?) Limitation. If i remember correctly, the talk was about reducing the resolution to actually just a single Line of pixels at some kind of crazy framerate to create some kind of line-scan-camera. In such a mode the chronos should be able to push tons of frames (lines) per second...

Chronos User Discussion / Question about Shutter Speed
« Last post by lcombs on December 06, 2018, 10:14:19 AM »
Hello!
  I have been trying the achieve a shutter speed of 1us or faster. I've noticed that on a couple of the Chronos presets the minimum shutter speed can go as low as 850ns (800x480 & 3,587 fps). A few other presets's shutter speed minimums are at 1.010, 1.210, 1.040 and the majority at 1.200. The preset with the highest frame rate at 31,191 fps has a minimum SS of 1.040... while another preset for 21,649 fps has minimum SS of 1.210...
What am I missing? I just can't find any rhyme or reason to this and i'm wondering how that limitation is calculated. I need to maintain a frame rate of at least 15k. Is there a combination of resolution and frame rate that will allow for a shutter speed faster than 1us?
Thank you for any input!
Laura

Hi, Sam. We could get the new UI and OS up and running as-is now, they just wouldn't be able to do anything. I think you'd find the old, C++-based camApp running on Debian to be much more useful. What do you want to do with the camera?

[edit]
We should have 0.4.0 by January. Possibly February if things go really badly.

HI DDR,
just wonder when and how we can get a real Debian OS and the chronos-gui-2 from  https://github.com/krontech/chronos-gui-2
to run a real chrono camera?

thx
Sam

Hi, SamL. You are correct. The GUI app, chronos-gui-2, currently only runs on a computer. This will be fixed in version 0.4.x. (0.3.x is the latest currently released version.)

Currently, chronos-gui-2 does NOT have the ability to record video or play it back on our camera. It's a work in progress.

That's super-cool, Dan D. :D

We don't get to see lab use that often. Thank you for taking the time to put the video together.
