The Chronos 1.4 high speed camera Kickstarter campaign has just a few days to go towards the final stretch. The extreme success of the campaign now nearing $500k Canadian Dollars or $370k USD is due to several factors including a compelling product, price point and good social media promotion.
There are just over 5 days to go before you can back this campaign. The 180 backers of the project are eager to get the camera scheduled to be delivered early next year by March or May depending on the pledge time. The early bird backer production is one week early according to David Kronstein the creator. PCB boards were sent for production last Sunday!
There was also a podcast from Woodshed Agency recorded with David Kronstein that we highly recommend you listen to below:

There you have it, the Chronos 1.4 is a fun and capable camera to use and one that will not break the bank. We expect to have one early in 2017 so a full review will follow. Congratulations to David Kronstein and his team for the Kickstarter campaign success, leveraging connections, social media and good engineering has paid off. We expect great things in the future from David including other cameras now that the genie has been left out of the bottle.
