Hello! I noticed that this is the one in which you selected to have worked for you to connect your camera up to your mac. This is all a new language to me so…..

Can someone explain in more detail?

Do I need all of these ….. 1. Thunderbolt

2. Firewire adapter

3. firewire 800

4. firewire 400 cable

My mac only has usb and some other smaller ports on it. I'm hoping for some help, please!

Thanks,

Old thread! Shame on you!

Anyway, you only need one firewire cable: 800 to 4-pin 400, like this one http://www.amazon.com/SIIG-9PIN-4PIN-Firewire-Cable/dp/B000VEOIDK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1393270904&sr=8-1&keywords=firewire+800+to+4+pin

Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter > Firewire cable > video camera
