Tethered Shooting on New Mac firewire 800 and original Firewire
May 6, 2012

The on going saga of switching to Mac after decades of Windows has been an eye opener but I am not going back.

I until recently shot tethered from Windows laptop LR3.6 to my Canon Mark IIs using the original firewire cable , I think it is a 4 pin?

My new Mac Book Pro arrives sometime this week and it comes with fire 800 9-pin connector.

My camera only tethers with firewire so I was wondering if anyone knows if i used a 4-pin to 9-pin connector/cable, if I will still be able to shoot tethered but at FW-400 speeds on LR4?

Anyone have this same setup?
