Mac & Camera Connection Guide

Connecting Your Camera to Your Mac

It's gotten a bit crazy with all the "daisy chaining" required! But, it does work!

First you need a 9 pin to 4 pin Firewire cable which is plugged directly into your DV camcorder. You'll plug this into the first adaptor, a Thunderbolt 2 to Firewire adaptor:

You then plug this into the second adaptor, a Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C)to Thunderbolt 2 adaptor.

Finally plug this into your USB-C port on your Mac.
