Chronos User Discussion / Re: Segmented recording problem
« Last post by PointyHairedBoss on June 05, 2019, 06:40:05 PM »
I tried reducing the frames for each segment with no change in the result.
Resolution 1280/720 - total 12421 frames, 4140 each of 3 segments
I first dropped 30 frames - same problem
Then I dropped more & more ending with 12000 frames, 4000 each segment - same problem:  The second segment records 4000 frames, the third segment records 8000 & the first segment is missing, I assume overwritten by the second half of the third frame.

Subtracting 8-10 frames from the length of each buffer may fix this wraparound issue.  So, with 4 segments, you might try subtracting about 64 to 80 frames from the total Record Length.
Thanks I will try that when I get the camera back. (It's in the mail)

Chronos User Discussion / Re: Forced to sell wife has cancer :(
« Last post by JamesB on June 01, 2019, 06:30:42 PM »
I feel for you, we have been in the same situation for over a year now. Pregnant wife 39yrs old first child and breast cancer. Baby is fine after two chemo rounds. Wife did 8 and is now in radiation therapy. It has been a tough experience emotionally and financially. We had to sell a lot of things and forego many others and bills keep coming in.  Wish you the best of luck with your situation, there is light at the end of the tunnel, hang in there and never lose focus.

Considering these cameras are now more expensive I am sure you will get takers.  Try also posting it on other services like eBay if it doesn't work out here.

I can recommend the flashlight Acebeam x70. It is mobile and can always provide more than enough light with 60,000 lumens. With the Chronos 1.4 I always work with the Acebeam X70 and as a second light with the Acebeam X80. So I have a perfect illumination in the videos. :)

Lights!!

If you don't already have some, buy the 200W Lights. One, ore better two.

I've always underestimated how much light you need for highspeed videos.
The 2.1 censor has bigger pixels but, more light is always better :D :D

I've pre-ordered one of the 2.1 versions - color sensor and fully maxed out on all options.  Hooray!!!

I didn't add any accessories to my initial order, but I'm planning to add one of everything when the camera is ready to ship.  If anyone has thoughts on what accessories are 'must have' versus just occasionally handy, I'd appreciate your input.  Also, please pass along recommendations for any third-party bits that you find useful.

@Nikon1 if you dont find anyone/ anything else to mount these 2/3" Lenses on that Camera, then Contact me via PM, i will help you find a way,

I'll likely be reaching out to you (and anyone else with experience) for advice and options regarding adapting my inventory of lenses to the camera.  The Metabones x0.58 Speedbooster looks like a perfect addition for the new sensor.  It's getting the MFT part of the speedbooster to match up with the C-mount on the camera that I'm not sure about.

Does anyone know if the Blackmagic line of lens adapters (Nikon, Canon, PL for the Ursa Mini Pro can be put into service on the Chronos?  The adapting part of the process is beyond my understanding at this time.

For now, I'm working up a list of past, current, and potential clients who could use some high speed camera work.  I'm excited to get this camera and put it to use!
