Resolution and Framerate
Having a 4/3” 1080p image sensor, it is able to capture up to 2.1 gigapixels per second. Like any other camera, the relationship between the resolution and the framerate works conversely. So in this case, you get 1000 fps when shooting at 1080p, and as you go lower in the resolution the framerate increases dramatically up to 100,000 which is insane. If you’re already familiar with the world of slow-motion or you are an initiate (in this case checking this one out will be of use), you know that frame rate matters to create clear, smooth, and good looking slow-motion images and footage. The more the framerate the, better your slo-mo footage will be.
In terms of memory options, Chronos 2.1 provides you with 8GB, 16GB, and 32GB memory options with the record time variation of 2.5, 5, and 11 seconds. The below table shows the exact relationship between resolution, framerate, memory, and record time.
