Chronos 1.4 is a purpose-designed, professional high-speed camera in the palm of your hand. With a 1.4 gigapixel-per-second throughput, you can capture stunning high-speed video at up to 1280x1024 resolution. Frame rate ranges from 1,057fps at full resolution, up to 21,500fps at minimum resolution.
The pixel throughput remains nearly constant with changing resolution, allowing you to trade resolution for speed. Frame rate is resolution too - temporal resolution, and Chronos lets you choose the best of spatial or temporal resolution for your shot.
Available in color and monochrome, and in 8GB and 16GB models for 4 and 8 second record time respectively.
Chronos is completely standalone, it can be used like any normal camera - pull it out of your bag anywhere and start shooting. It can also be used tethered via Ethernet for remote control and video download in test labs. You can record hundreds of shots - hours worth of shooting - to a single card.
We started on the journey that lead to Chronos because we believe high-speed imaging should be for everyone, not just scientific research labs and TV productions with massive budgets. Our passion has resulted in a camera that’s disrupting the high-speed video industry. Cameras with similar features currently sell for around $25k. Chronos is about 1/10th the price, with more features, smaller size, and far better usability.. You can buy a Chronos for less than the cost of renting a typical high-speed camera for a week or two!
