Thunderbold or a kick in the.......

Postby GerryB » Sat Oct 13, 2012 12:13 pm

Good day all.
As Apple seem to be dropping the Firewire connection in favour Thunderbolt is it le to connect a camera (Canon HV40) via Thunderbolt/Firewire to capture video 'as it happens' to the HDD as you can through Firewire direct?
If not, what is the alternative, buy a new camera?
Many thanks in advance.

As a Mac user, I'm intrigued by this evolution. According to this blog, Thunderbolt can do everything FireWire can do, though even faster. And that includes capture DV video. ... E2%80%99s/

But does that mean it can replace and improve it on every level? I'd like to know too.
