Is this enough to power a Digital Camera Back like PhaseOne or Hasselbald?

Majority of medium format camera digital backs equip with Firewire connectivity instead of USB 3.0, is this adapter capable to be used to connect and power a digital bak of that kind, so as the image transfer? For brand like Phase One, Leaf or Hasselbald?

    i have tried, couldn't power my phaseone P65+ for files transfer, but when you set to use the battery on digital back, transfer works fine.

  • I am currently running six daisy-chained firewire 800 drives on my macbook pro retina now and copying back and forth between drives at the same time. No issues what so ever.

    So I assume it can support the digital back. You can always return it if it doesn't work out to Apple store. Good luck.
