  • Videos

Extremely compact super slow motion camera.  The Chronos 1.4 is a 1.4 gigapixel-per-second handheld high-speed camera capable of up to 1057 frame per second, though at 1280x1024 pixels.

Completely self-contained and portable, it allows super slow motion images to be taken with the minimum of fuss and cost.

Although it can record 1280x1024 video at 1057fps, though it can record higher frame rates of up to 38,500fps by reducing acquisition resolution.

Don't forget that you will need a LOT of light to record at super-slow motion frame rates, so ensure that you shoot in lots of daylight or use a lot of location high-speed lighting.

Video is saved in compressed h.264 or uncompressed RAW format to removable SD-XC media.
