  • not enough power

    It does adapt the thunderbolt port to make it a firewire port, but it's not as good a Firewire port as you can find on any cheap o It does adapt the thunderbolt port to make it a firewire port, but it's not as good a Firewire port as you can find on any cheap old MBP from years ago. It lacks power, which means that some external drives and devices won't work and there is a limit to how many devices you can daisy chain.

    So we need an adaptor and this is the only one, but it's not Apple's finest hour..

    WARNING! Does not produce enough power to run high capacity mobile drives i.e. the G-Tech G-RAID Mini...

    Luckily I tested it is advance of playing a gig at the weekend using Serato.

    Complete JOKE!

    I can't believe that Apple hasn't considered the fact that the majority of creative professionals need high capacity fast mobile storage.

    I suppose we now need to wait for 2Tb Thunderbolt enabled SSD drives which by my reckoning will cost more than the MacBook Pro!!!!

Gives full control of the camcorder from the computer interface. Simple to set up and works faultlessly - recommended!

    Like all Apple cables this is very expensive and short but stylish and well made.

    I bought it to use on my new iMac which has Thunderbolt only outlets so that I could still content FireWire devices that I used with my FireWire equipped 2009 iMac.

    However, the old iMacs have FireWire 400 outlets and this cable is the differently shaped 800 FireWire. So, a further cable or adapter is needed to connect to the device. A shame that Apple don't include this option.
