100,000 FPS with the 2.1 as previously advertised
« on: September 11, 2023, 11:25:06 AM »
When I purchased my 2.1, it was under the expectation that the camera would be able to reach 100,000 FPS per advertising on Kron Technologies website.  To my knowledge (and please correct me if I am wrong), the limit for this camera is still around 24,000 FPS.  Is there a way to increase the FPS even if it is an unadvertised method.

Nope, they weren't able to do it. Will just have to wait for a Chronos 2.1 ULTRA MAX PRO for higher fps in the future.  ;D I hope they release a 4K 1000 fps version soon.

My understanding is that we can't get these frame rates because of an H.264 encoder issue. If that's the case, can it be made available when doing RAW DNG shooting?

@rdemyan yes, it is possible. Take a look through this thread for instructions:
https://forum.krontech.ca/index.php?topic=661.0

I was able to configure my 2.1 to support 114,504fps at 832x8 resolution, and 85,324fps at 832x16 resolution. Technically the h.264 encoder works, however I suspect saving in one of the other formats would yield better results for unusual resolutions.

What's the resolution to get to around 40,000 fps with the 2.1?

Here are a few settings the Chronos 2.1 can achieve near 40,000fps

HResVResFPS
19202040496.8
12803237745.3
10243839787.8
8005239745.6

Would you be able to post video samples of each resolution?
