Are you connecting them directly to the camera? If so, that won't work, 12V is too low and 24V is too high.

Thanks for your response! Yes, I connected them directly, hoping that they would support the internal battery at least. So a voltage converter is the solution...

Hi everyone!


I have a small question about external power for the Chronos:

I've found in my inventory two lead batteries of this type (website is in german, as I am from Switzerland).

The batteries are in good condition (no deep discharge) but still, they don't seem to run the Chronos. What do you think about this? Is the voltage too low?


Many thanks in advance!  :)

Hi everyone!  :)

I filmed some different types of fireworks.

In the beginning, I had some troubles with the quality on youtube when I uploaded in 720p, then I switched to 1080p.
Here is the playlist so far, more to come:

I got screwed by Amazon. Bought a bunch of the 48 watt automotive LEDs. They claim 48 watts, they actually use only 8 watts.

Getting ready to return these units. Might have to go with a build-it-yourself approach.

To be fair to them, they don't claim they consume 48W in power, they say they are 48W LED output power.
All those LED spots of different types use '3W' LEDs in various arrays, so on that lamp they are using 16 x 3W = 48W.

I have four of those same spots and they're not to bad really, probably fairly close to the claimed LED output power, but they don't compare to the 100W Stratus.

Sorry about that! We had a few instances of that screw being loose, due to the contract manufacturer not tightening them properly. We've checked that on all remaining stock.

Testing out the new firmware update now, it should be out soon.

I'm still waiting for my 24V PSUs to arrive for the 4 I've got. Planning to use them this Wednesday for the first time, so they better turn up tomorrow!

I might actually be able to stop the lens down a few stops!

Anyone have good recommendations from Amazon in the Sub 200$ range? I have tried a few and no luck. The Stratus I got went out after maybe 4 uses so I am hesitant to use them. Anyone used halogen lights or something of that nature?

How were you powering it? Have you contacted Stratus about it?

Yep found that the issue was the battery. Running 2v per cell. Went and got a 24v 7+amp now working fine. So bought another light to make things better!
