Hello;

I have a Canon Z300 and a new MacBook. Since the MacBook doesn't have a firewire port but does have 2 usb ports how do I get my video into my mac? Help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi-

There are a few options. A USB-FireWire adapter cable might work. Or, for a similar price you could pick up a more useful combination hub with both USB and FireWire. That way you still have access to a USB jack (on the hub).

For the purposes of simple file transfers these might work. But be mindful that for more advanced functionality (for example firewire audio interfaces or other devices which require drivers) there might be compatibility issues. And some FireWire devices which are powered via FW would likely not receive power through an adapter/hub. They might need to be plugged into wall AC if possible.
