    Hi, I’m new here, so please forgive a possible misplaced post. I just ordered the STF-8300 and the Remote Guide Head, intending to use the latter in the OAG accessory. However, it appears that the RGH has an HDMI connector while the camera seems to have “telephone”-type connector. Is there another guide camera I should have ordered instead? If so, I’ll have to cancel the RGH.

    Thanks.

    Whoops - yes you need to cancel the RGH. That isn't supported by the STF-8300.

    We do have a new product in the works for guiding... please stay tuned.

    Thanks for the quickly. I just sent an email to Sales to cancel the RGH.

    The OAG-8300 was originally designed for the ST-i, which is also discontinued. But it will likely work with another brand of guide camera, as long as the sensor isn’t too far back.
