I'm a professional videographer with fifteen+ years experience of flaky firewire connectivity so my hopes were not particularly high, however I am delighted that I can continue to use this old camera as a capture device. It's sat in a box for two years and is probably unsellable now.
In my case the adapter has already paid for itself as yesterday I was asked to supply a third camera for a product launch event in 36 hours time. For a total outlay of fifty quid I am able to charge my client an additional amount many times more than my outlay. The alternative would have been to rent a third camera for several hundred, if I could get one at such short notice.
Next day delivery c/o Prime meant I ordered the adapter on the Friday afternoon and it arrived on the Saturday morning.
Despite all the good news, it's still rather expensive for what it is - but that's Apple for ya, and that's why I dropped a star :-)
I now have two HD Video cameras with damaged fire wire outputs. thanks a lot guys.
After hotswapping my firewire leads in several camera's for years, I nover thought for a minute that this was likely.
Until I purchased an iMac I had connected my elderly but excellent camcorder to my Windows PC using the Firewire 400 connector on the supplied lead. I hadn't even realised that there were two variants of Firewire, i.e. the 400 and 800 which are very different in design.
The adapter connected firmly and easily to the Neet 400/800 adapter and in turn to my 400 male connector on my camcorder lead and worked perfectly first time. Nearly £27 between them to connect a cable to a computer is a bit steep but cheaper than buying a new camcorder and throwing all my old tapes away.
I've got a modern MacBook air and a bunch of old 2nd 3rd and 4th gen iPods and iPod mini (I'm playing with converting them to ssd). A lot of these sync and / or charge with FireWire rather than USB. Apple hasn't put a FireWire port on macs for a while now. So what to do....?
Well the thunderbolt to FireWire and the FireWire to FireWire 400 adapter work a treat. Just plug the iPod FireWire cable in and bingo. Your older iPod is charging and syncing.
Very impressed with the 3rd gen. I had problems restoring them over USB, Even with the y cable that gave FireWire power and USB sync.
The same iPod restored no problem over FireWire with this adapter. Very happy.
The other top tip is to look in the used section. Amazon had a load of these as warehouse deals. Basically new but in a creased box. Save a tender over what apple is charging.
In short, if you can use USB2 or USB3 to connect, do so. Do not bother with a firewire 800 converter to thunderbolt. Its too slow.
