I would like to connect a tape-based camcorder with a (4-pin) Firewire 400 output to a Thunderbolt port on my late 2012 iMac (which has no Firewire ports).  Apple sells a Apple Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter (i.e., Firewire 800).  I'm thinking I could plug that into a 9 PIN/ 4PIN BILINGUAL FireWire 800 - FireWire 400 Cable  from monoprice.com.  Should that work, and if so, is it the only/best solution?
