Firewire 400 6-pin/4-pin cable, IEEE-1394a, Black, 15ftProduct Filters
Note: All camcorders use a 4-pin connector for their 1394 interface.
Nearly all computers use a 6-pin connector for their 1394 interface.
So, you need a 6-pin to 4-pin configuration to connect a computer to
If you want to transfer video between two camcorders then you need
a 4-pin to 4-pin configuration.
Our Firewire 400 Cables meet the specifications outlined in the IEEE-1394a standard. This means that one can daisy chain up to 63 supported devices on a single Firewire port provided the devices support daisy chaining. The standard supports the following transfer rates: S400 (400 Mbit/s), S200 (200 Mbit/s) and S100 (100 Mbit/s). Lastly the 4 pin connector does not supply power while the 6 pin connector is able to supply power. If your device requires a 4 pin connector it will not be powered/charged via Firewire it will instead use its own separate power.
