      These cables are very durable and sturdy. The only thing I don't like is connectors themselves are black plastic. I prefer metal because in low light situations, you can't see which side is up or down, and with FireWire, you need to know. All in all, good rugged cable that will last

          I was all prepared to buy the more expensive cord from the manufacturer until the B&H clerk said it was unnecessary. It was to transfer video from an old camcorder to my newer computer. It worked at a fraction of the cost.

                  I use this cable to connect my venerable SONY DCR-TRV120 camcorder to my iMAC (which does not have an "old" Firewire port). This cable solves the problem and allows me to transcribe the old digital tape movies so that I can edit and produce DVDs on my iMAC.

                                  Due to a fast approaching deadline, and the purchase of a new MacBook Pro, I needed this cord fast. I didn't have to pay extra shipping and the cord came within 2 days. I am currently in the middle of a project that was captured using this cord with no problems. My computer was able to identify my camera the first time I turned it on.

                                  Thank you B&H,

                                        No need to buy the high-priced brands, this works great.

                                              These cables are very durable and sturdy. The only thing I don't like is connectors themselves are black plastic. I prefer metal because in low light situations, you can't see which side is up or down, and with FireWire, you need to know. All in all, good rugged cable that will last

                                                  I use the cord to connect my older cameras to my new MAC. The new MAC doesn't have the old usb ports. Did have to change the settings to get it to work but am happy with the end product.
