    Pearstone FW-9406 reviews

    FireWire 400 9-Pin to 4-Pin Cable - 6' (1.8 m) is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 35.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pearstone cable connection to Camera The salesperson was very professional in offering a solution to my problem having previously purchased a defective Fire Wire cable elsewhere that was incompatible with my Panasonic DVX108B high end camera tethered to a PC running Corel Video. The salesman new exactly what the problem was, and solved it. I would have ended up paying for a DVD portable recorder that would have played back my DV tapes for transferring video data to edit. Another salesman showed me how to use Boot Camp to partition my MacPro so that I could have two operating systems on one unit. Great work B & H.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Analog to Digital Conversion This was perfect for my old school tape-based analog/digital video camera. I own a Sony camera that I was having a hard time transferring the video on the tape onto my computer. It was easy as plug and play. I own a MacBook Pro with firewire 9-pin (as seen) and my camera had the DV output, so it was as simple as plugging it in, opening iMovie and hitting play to transfer the video! I couldn't be more pleased. There are all kinds of devices out there to convert your Analog tape to digital video - they're pretty unnecessary - if you have a Mac, this cable does it all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The right tool for the job! I have a miniDV video camera (with 4-pin Firewire out) and hundreds of hours of video... I have a newer iMac with Thunderbolt in...and I almost bought a 4-pin to Firewire 800 adaptor 3 times as expensive... but the B&H expert on the phone suggested this simple cable instead (I already have a Fire800 to Thunderbolt adaptor.)Works like a charm!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product This cable successfully plugged into a firewire 400 - thunderbolt adapter to import my DV camera footage from 4-pin to camera. I was unsure if this would be possible due to the technology jump from my MacBook pro to a DV camera but it worked. It was much faster than my FireWire 200-4pin cable that went directly into my old Mac which caused pauses in the DV camera capture. I had no issues with this and moved very quickly and fluently. Very pleased with this cable - Pearstone makes a great product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Cable Right out of the bag you can feel that this cable is sturdy. The extra Shielding almost seems a little too thick. The outside rubber is soft and flexible, and the connectors seem to be molded well enough that you shouldn't have to worry about strain on the connectors. I am fine with the thickness of this cable, but i have a feeling that some people would prefer a thinner cable that be more flexible or wrap smaller for throwing in a already cluttered camera bag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would definitely buy this product again I use this FireWire cable to import miniDVD videos from my Canon ZR40 camcorder into iMovie on my Mac. I also purchased the 6-pin FireWire to 9-pin FireWire-800 Adapter which plugs into this cable and then into a Mac thunderbolt cable and into my iMac. Works great. I had previously tried using Roxio software and a different setup which did not work well. This cable with the other adaptor imported those old videos into iMovie easily.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable cable manufacturer, second-time happy customer Good quality cables, my second experience with this manufacturer. Don't risk getting cheaply made garbage on Amazon. This worked great transferring a digital video signal from my Sony Handycam to a Thunderbolt adapter to my MacBook Air, and a salesperson confirmed it would work for my needs (can't get customer service like that from Amazon). Thank you B&H!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was able to connect and old Hi8 Deck to a new MacBook Pro Worked as expected. I was trying to connect an old Hi8 deck to my new MacBook Pro with USB-C via a Sony Digital Converter that only has firewire. I was able to connect this cable to a firewire to thunderbolt converter and then a thunderbolt to USB-C converter. It worked but only through iMovie which was just fine.
