Connects old Sony DCR video camera to Mac with a FireWire 400 to 800 adapter as well

I needed to get a connection between an old Sony video camera (DCR-PC100 which must be about 15 years old) and my Mac computer that has USB and thunderbolt connectors. When I received this adapter, I discovered that the FireWire connection was FireWire 800. My old camera used FireWire 400. So then I needed an adapter to get me between FireWire 400 and 800. I thought that by the time I added all that together there was little hope that the camera would interface with the computer. But I was very pleasantly surprised and everything seems to work perfectly. So for old legacy video cameras, this is a good way to get things back in action.

Works great so far on my Thunderbolt 2 iMac

I have an iMac and it didn't come with a FireWire to transfer files from a old video camera that had mini DV tapes, so I finally got this adapter that works great with Thunderbolt 2 that my iMac has, I am running high Sierra on my iMac and I have the latest update on my macOS. So far the the program movies recognized the camera without problems and allowed me to import. That is all I needed. So I am very please with the product. Many people here were complaining that it didn't work for them, I will assume they were using a thunderbolt 3 or usb C connection. This adapter doesn't work with thunderbolt 3 or usb C as Apple hasn't release one, I have a MacBook Pro that is out of luck because it only has the usb c ports. But at least I can use it in my iMac

Just works! Plain and simple.

Works exactly as described. I get FW800 connectivity via Thunderbolt. This is exactly what I needed for some HDV video I needed to get transferred. Was able to control the camera with Final Cut Pro X 10.4.Yes, it does seem like a lot of money for this adapter. If I could have paid less I would have. But since I did not have many other options that would ""just work"" I paid this price. And it just works.

Yes yes, I know. Firewire is all but extinct. Got it to attach my Focusrite Sapphire Pro Firewire connection pre-amp to my new iMac. Doesn't work with current 2018 Macs because its a Thunderbolt 2 connection and not a Thunderbolt 3 connector. I can use it on my older Mac, but one thing NOT described here on this item is the 'Thunderbolt 2' connection. Maybe it's just me, maybe everyone knows this is a Thunderbolt 2.but if you have a newer 3 type connection SURPRISE! It won't work with anything Firewire.

This is not a 2 way adapter. It works to connect a firewire computer to a thunderbolt computer but not the other way around. From a thunderbolt mac I was not able to access my older firewire macs hard drive.

Worked great on PC Laptop/Windows 10

I have a couple of Presonus Firebox audio interfaces that are FireWire 400 based and needed a way to connect them to my Asus PC Laptop running Windows 10 (which surprisingly has a Thunderbolt connector!), so I decided to go with this. I was very glad to find that it was easily recognized by my PC. Since this gives you a FireWire 800 connection, I also connected a FireWire 800 to FireWire 400 adapter. And sure enough, it still worked! The only problem I ran into was that this did not provide enough power to the Firebox units, so I had to use their separate power adapters, but no biggie there!

Works great, should cost half as much by now

I bought this to use with another adapter (Firewire type A to Firewire type B) so I could connect an old Hi8 camcorder to my Mac to import video for editing. Although it was in my opinion much too expensive, as all Apple adapters are, it was the only option.

Great product. It immediately recognized my Panasonic camcorder and imported video to iMovie. I am delighted with my purchase. It is a great solution for MacBook Pro owners who need to transfer video from a Firewire 800 DV cable through the Thunderbolt 2 port of the 15"" Retina MacBook Pro.I would recommend this product to anyone.

Does its job but price is high here

This little item saved me. I used it to pull off data off a machine in target disk mode to move it to a new machine. It's a lifesaver though I think the price here is higher than Apple, which is surprising.

As is always the case, Apple accessories are expensive. I knew it would be, but I also know it would work correctly every time, which it does.

This is an update to a prior negative review. I thought it arrived DOA, but it apparently was the attached cable.

Slightly works with iPod 3rd Gen (Dock Connector).

I bought this in conjunction with a Firewire 400 to Firewire 800 adapter for an old iPod 3rd gen (Dock Connector). For some reason the daisy chain connection worked to restore and update the iPod perfectly fine. But soon as the iPod was updated, this connection reduced to only charging. I had to fall back on a 30-pin to USB connection for syncing afterwards.
