Chronos User Discussion / Re: SSD rig parts list
« Last post by SideshowJDD on April 15, 2019, 12:23:15 PM »
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 -
Joe

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 ?
Well, i did some Crazy stuff with the Metabones 0.58x (i Own that one), and adapted it to an Nikon1 J5, which works Great. So it will also work with the Chronos as Long as Flange distance is considred. But i am Not sure if the 0,58x will cover the Full M3/4 Sensor Format, which the 2.1 has. For the 1.4 Chronos (full sensor Coverage) and filming 720p with the 2.1, it should be fine pretty sure, 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...
The 0.71x should cover easily the full sensor of the 2.1, but i dont know the 0.64x and what it could do.
For 1" (the Format, i am used to and use) the Metabones 0,58x is quite insane!
1 2/3 Stops more Light! so your 50mm f/1.2 becomes a 29mm f/0.7!
Optical performance is very good!
3. I wish Krontech will provide customer with prebuilt on-camera MTF mount, which sounds right for a MTF sensor camera.
Standard MTF mount will open a lot of possibility for usage of lens and adapters.
Well...
"sounds right for a MFT sensor camera"
There are lot of Industry Highspeed-Cameras with MFT-Sensor and CS- or C-Mount. This is quite Common thing to see.
So there is nothing too much Wrong about it beeing a CS-Mount seen from that point of view...
.
Also there is some Disadvantages about going with a Fixed MFT-Mount:
.
  • You cant use some of the C-Mount lenses which are Very FAT and need to sit very close to the Mount.
  • You cant use Mount Adapters. Tor the CS-Mount of the Chronos Cameras in combination with those four Thread-Mounting-Points at the Front this means, that you would even Be able to adapt stuff like Sony-E-Mount glass, Nikon Z-Mount Glass, Canon EOS-R- Mount Glass, MFT-Mount Stuff, Nikon1-Mount Stuff, Fuji-x-Mount Glass and a ton of other very crazy stuff via some Interchangeable Mounts
  • If you want to use some VERY short Focal length Lenses (Below 6mm for example...) because you use Fast Framerates (=only small area of the Sensor is actually used= Smaller effective Sensor Size) and still want to go pretty wide, CS-Mount is sometimes your only Option
.
so, you can Make the CS-Mount Chronos an MFT-Mount Camera with an Interchangeable Mount, but if it was an MFT-Mount to beginn with, you cant use anything with Shorter or simmilar Flange-Distance!
So to fit everyones Needs (Dont forget, that the Chronos 1.4 AND 2.1 is also an VERY interresting Camera for Industry-Applications! Not only Cinema and the Like. Everybody likes good performance for an Fair Price!), the way they gone with the Chronos is actually very smart and the best way to do it.
You are Right, "Native" MFT-Mount will give you a lot of Options for Lenses, but the Chronos has way more Options for Lenses, including EVERYTHING anyone will be ever able to adapt to MFT-Mount!
The thing you miss is propably a high Quality Interchangeable Mount (not one, that screws into the CS-Mount, but one that will use those four Screw-Holes in the Front). Just forget about the CS-Mount, if you dont like it, and think about it, as an Interchangeable-Mount Camera (like for example an RED with interchangeable Mount...), but you cant buy the Mounts yet.
If it helps you anything, i (and a lot of other people) could built an Interchangeable Mount like what you want. Or help You with Building / Printing your own...

As I understand, there will be a m4/3 mount accessory on the Chronos store at some point. What I don't know yet is how the reduced flange distance will factor into this. Aimed Research did a trial 3D printed m4/3 mount for the 1.4 and the tolerance and spaces were extremely small from C to m4/3.  There is value in offering m4/3 lens support because there are dozens of excellent non electronic manual cinema style lenses for the platform like rokinons and SLR magics.
The 2.1 seems to be a camera that will really change the market and allow ownership of full HD slow mo to everyone. Great Mission!

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: http://forum.krontech.ca/index.php?topic=123.0

Many MFT lens needs the camera body to control the motor inside the lens to focus even when you select the manual focusing mode. Only some Pro MFT lens have the  mechanic design which U can focus with the focusing ring and select the F no. by the aparture ring. This is a huge budget for Krontech to buy the patent from Pana & OM. So Chronons will not cost several k US $ *_*

The screen and rear bezel that will be used on the Chronos2.1 can be swapped onto a Chronos1.4 as a drop-in replacement. I don't have any idea of what the pricing for such an upgrade would be.

1. can you further explain the compatibility note for EF & F lens ?

it seems 2.1 still has the C-mount, right ? Does that mean the C-EF or C-F adapter will be provided with the purchase ?

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 ?

I'm assuming that since the 2.1's 720p max is still 1,500fps (the same as the 1.4) that the camera must be reading out the full width of the sensor and then cropping it?   Does this mean you could capture 1920x720 at 1,500fps if you wanted (and crop to a 16x9 frame in post)?
