Chronos HD 1000fps HD Super Slow Motion Camera (High Speed)

HD super high speed capture of 1000fps


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.



C Mount

Media Standard


Capture Resolution


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 1280×1024 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.
