Ernie. I can't capture direct on the iMac, there is no DV port.
DV = Firewire! All Macs have Firewire, or now, Thunderbolt+adaptor.
If you mean the Camera has no Firewire port, then it sounds strange if it's a DV/HDV camera..!
The white plug is FW800 connection for my disk not the Firewire 400 8 pin that I have on input to the PC.
Wonder what the one with a lightning bolt is? Thunderbolt?
And that would be a Firewire 800 plug (older ones have FW400)
The one in-between the white and yellow is Thunderbolt.
Edit: You can get a 800->400 adaptor, or simply get a FW800->FWmini cable to attach your camera directly.
