I plan to purchase a new iMac with thunderbolt connector, without FireWire . I have to capture hdv from my Sony fx1 tape based camcorder.


I've read that the Apple thunderbolt to FireWire adaptor should works, but some people has problem with this solution. I also plan to use a thunderbolt hard drive with FW at the rear and plug the fx1 on the drive.


Is there any people here that capture hdv with one of those setup?


I use FCP3 and final cut X.


Thank you.
