With our advancements in technology, we have the ability to see the world in new and amazing ways. For instance, Phantom Cameras have allowed us to quite literally slow down time. But they come at a price. Now, for the first time ever, you can actually slow down high speed events with a handheld device that doesn’t break the bank. Introducing the Chronos 1.4!
Essentially, the Chronos 1.4 is a professional handheld high-speed camera. It’s that advanced that it can handle a 1.4 gigapixel-per-second throughput.
So, if you love slow motion as much as we do, then this is definitely a project that you want to back.
Because it can handle such a phenomenal throughput, this camera can allow you to capture amazing high-speed footage at a resolution of 1280 x 1024. It also has a frame rate of 1,057fps at full resolution and go up to 21,600fps at its minimum resolution. Check out the awesome videos below.
The Chronos also comes with a global shutter that produces no “jello” effect at high speed. It also has an electronic shutter that can function at 1/fps down to a minimum of 2us (1/500,000 s). In addition to this, it also has a 5” 800 x 480 multitouch capacitive touchscreen. This means that there is no need for struggle with a computer or cables. You can also link it with a TV via its HDMI video output.
So, if you want to get into high-speed filming, then you should definitely go back this project.
