    I'd like to use my ST-i to record a video. Does the hardware support this?

    No it does not operate as a video camera. It takes still frames only.

    • Thank you, Doug. Is that a hardware limitation or a software limitation? Is SBIG planning to release a camera (or firmware update) which supports video acquisition?

    The hardware is designed as a low noise, high dynamic range still-frame camera. It is not designed to stream video.
