Chronos User Discussion / Re: Never-ending save

We have recently discovered this software bug with (Where the footage is stuck in an endless saving loop) the video encoder when saving video as H.264 at high framerates. Our team is currently working on resolving this issue in the new software updates. In the meantime, I would suggest saving your footage with CinemaDNG, TIFF, or other raw formats as a workaround.

I filmed something at approx 10486(640x240)fps today, but when I went to save it to the SD card (mp4 format) it never finished. it just went round and round the buffer never finishing. (see attached screenshot) I powered off the camera to see if anything useful had been written to the SDcard but but although there was an MP4 file with the right date on it, it's not readable. Oddly, it might be about the right size but I can't get anything to open it annoyingly.

It wasn't anything critical (nothing I do is critical :), but it was worrying.

Hey guys!

Look at the slow-mo chemical reactions on my youtube channel :D - Chronos 2.1, 1920x1080 1000FPS & 800x600 4352FPS, Samyang 24mm & 100mm macro.


I have a Fotodiox adaptor for Nikon and some quite big lenses (thank you eBay) and never had the adaptor go wobbly on me, so it might just be that you have a faulty one?

This is working really well for me. Thanks!

I have an Atomos Shinobi screen and haven't noticed any freezes when it's been connected. I've had it quite a while but don't use it all the time and usually connect it after booting.

I'm using an Apurture LS-C300d/II, It's an LED so I have no idea how that compares to halogen lights, but it's very bright! I hear that the new Amaran 200D is even brighter and quite a lot cheaper, if not as solidly built.

I got finally my new high pressure chamber done and it has windows!

I'm really enjoying these, Lauri :)

I didn't realise there was a spacer on the 'old' Fotodiox, so when the new one arrived I just replaced the whole thing.

Now I've managed to get the spacer off and put it on the blue Fotodiox and it's fine after a little reacalibration.

Thank you :)

Chronos User Discussion / Focus adjustment
« on: December 19, 2020, 02:39:41 AM »
I'm using exclusively Nikon-mount (Tamron, Sigma and a couple of real Nikon) lenses with a FotoDiox 'pro' adaptor (the one with the blue stop-down ring) and have been having focussing oddities so I decided to try out the back-focus adjustment as detailed in the manual.

I started turning the mount with the lens focussed on infinity and pointing at a remote tree as described. I turned it and turned it and turned it and turned it. It was getting nearer, I could tell, but it was sticking quite far out of the camera now and when it was very near (but still not right) there must have been a whole centimetre of thread visible! I thought leaving it like this might not be a good idea, given the weight of most of the lenses and the strain that must put on the mount, so I put it back in again and gave up. I'd rather have erratic focussing than a broken camera.

Was I doing something wrong? is there another adjustment I can make or a shim I need to put in place to get decent focussing - or even a different Cmount to Nikon adaptor? My main problem at the moment is the 'infinity' is at the point marked about 2m on the lens, yes really,  and I can't get very close to anything with it in focus.

How are other people with Nikon lenses getting on?

A little slow-mo humour I managed to capture this afternoon. Bird startles friend :)

Several minutes sounds wrong to me too; like Nikon1, my 2.1 boots up in around 42/3 seconds. Not quite as instantaneous as a DSLR but quite an improvement over the hour or so I heard Lauri mention a Phantom can take to set up :)

If your camera really is taking 5 minutes to boot up then you might have a faulty SD card so, installing a new one (especially, if you just have one lying around) *might* at least get you down to 'normal'.

Could people please list some lens they use that don't vignette with the 2.1    Especially Canon mount or C mount type that might be available on ebay.  TIA.

I'm just buying old Nikon lenses. There are loads available on eBay (I even got one really cheap cos the autofocus was broken!).
