The YouTube channel TAOFLEDERMAUS has received a Beta version of the Chronos 1.4c High speed camera and has done a walk-through of the main interface, boot up time and clip trimming. While the camera is still in pre launch software it is clear the ability to shoot and save clips is rock solid. For such an early version before production it already has most of what you would expect.
The interface has a Linux based OS with a simplified interface layer to control the camera. It has a handy preset resolution menu as well as live clop marks showing you the video capture area as you make adjustments.
If we could improve the interface in some way is to add color coding to the selection bar of in and out points or visible brackets to make it easier to select a clip and save.

21,600 FPS for $2500 – Chronos High Speed Camera – Sneak Peek! by TAOFLEDERMAUS:
It is clear the Chronos 1.4c is already offering professional performance for an estimated $2,500.00 . David Kronstein the creator of the Chronos high speed camera has done an admirable job bringing it close to production ready in such a short time. The use of commodity Nikon batteries is also a good way to standardize the power source for this fully contained and portable slow motion camera.
If the Chronos upcoming funding campaign bears fruit you will be able to order one for yourself real soon. It seems David will use Go Fund Me according to comments. The low cost high speed camera market is exploding with features and portability that are really putting a dent into the professional market. Rental houses should offload their aging inventory while they still can; the democratization of slow motion video is here to stay.
