Software Dev / Re: Problems updating

David.
Problem figured out.
So what (I think) is going on is that the OS doesn't like to read/wright from a USB drive OVER 32-Gig.
Anything above 32 it will not read/wright from even though it shows in the utility. It likes 16 & 32.
I used a program called gui format  http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?fat32format.htm
(It's a handy program to have around. ) to format the the larger drives I have to the FAT32 format. But it seems your OS can tell it's a larger drive. 
I have yet to test if the camera will transfer from the SD card to the USB. But that is to slow. It's faster just to swap out the SD cards. I'm using ScanDisk 64 Gig cards with no problem.
PS: in the next version of firmware can you make the drop down windows larger. Like the Quick select for the FPS and screen resolution sizes. There just to small and it takes several tries to get the size we want.

Chronos User Discussion / Re: Adapting other lenses to C-mount

Martin,

I'm not familiar with the Sony lenses but if you don't need any electronic controls, I think I can make you one.  Just hunt down a physical drawing of the mount for me and I'll tackle a prototype grade mount. I've already made a few Micro Four Thirds mounts - or at least dedicated speedbooster mounts.  The mount you are looking for is not much different on the distance.

Just reach out to me at Aimed Research and we'll work on something together in our spare time.

We were filming somethings couple weeks ago with big and expensive phantom camera but the chronos footage turned out also surprisingly good on this 5 meter long stick of dynamite video https://youtu.be/ThLtMhiak-Q

The chronos footage starts on 8:20

I was wondering, What model phantom were you filming with? I recall you saying "the best one" Would that be a v2512?

Cheers,
Max

You might be looking for a quilter's ruler or cutting mat.  They are sold clear (for your own background) or white among other colors.

Honestly, if a TV show is using a grid (behind or outside the plane of travel) it is only for show.  If you are interested in accuracy, you use an image calibration in the plane of travel.  This means you have a second image file for your calibration grid in the plane of travel and reference it for your tests.  You update the calibration every time you move the camera or adjust the lens.  If you only have video editing software, then you make the calibration image transparent and overlay it to your test videos.  If you have decent motion analysis software, then you can have on-screen point tracking.

What I have been recommending is the Micnova light, sound, and motion trigger.  There are other brands that share the same trigger housing but the electronics are not the same.  Contact me through Aimed-Research.com and I can get you some links to the best outlets to purchase the trigger and the required items to go from 2.5m to BNC.

Remembering settings across reboots (most common request!) 
awesome! does that include a black cal?  so i can turn on and off in the housing to save battery



Autonomous operation with automatic save-after-trigger and automatic recording start after save
Thank you thank you! yeah! this is going to be so epic

would be awesome to change shutter with the jog dial for exposure

hdmi will be cool too!

I will second this request.
