Firewire Thunderbolt adapter

Recommended Posts

When thunderbolt was relatively new I remember seeing alot of people have issues capturing miniDV with the firewire thunderbolt adapter. Just wondering if anyone captures using this thing and have you had any issues? Looking to upgrade my MacBook soon and it doesn't look like you can request to have a firewire port installed anymore.

I'm using one, besides costing a relatively large amount of money it works fine. It doesn't seem to function any different from a normal firewire connection.

That being said, I'm using mine on a 2013 iMac with a thunderbolt 2 connection. A new macbook is only going to have thunderbolt 3, which will require an additional thunderbolt 3 to 2 adapter, don't know how that influences things as apparently there is some kind of signal conversion going on.
