    Hello all,

    I will attach photos to this thread from where the FireWire ports of both the MacBook Pro and the Sony handycam.

    The MacBook Pro was born in 2007-2010 and uses OS X Yosemite.

    The Sony handycam is a Carl zeiss vario-tessar mini dv dcr-hc26.

    I'm trying to upload footage from the video camera to my laptop.

    I'm aware that I need to buy a FireWire cable but have just found out there are multiple different types of FireWire cables and Sony and apple have different patents for their brands as far as FireWire is concerned.

    What FireWire cable (and adapter if need be) should I buy to upload footage to my laptop?

    Thanks a bunch!
