I am working with a Canon GL2 which records on minidv tapes and get into a computer with a firewire out. Unfortunately I do not have a firewire port on my computer.

Is there anyway to get the recordings onto a computer that doesn't have a firewire port?

Some people use the Firestore recorders that record the video to a CF card, here's their website: http://www.focusinfo.c​om …ions/video_prod​uction.asp (external link)
As for the possibility of a dongle or converter that can get the signal directly to the computer... that i don't know.

I acquired an expensive camera so I can hang out in forums, annoy wedding photographers during formals and look down on P&S users... all the while telling people it's the photographer, not the camera.

i wouldn't be surprised if there were some cheap adapter dongles on Amazon that you could purchase.

If you have a spare PCI slot you can add Firewire to your machine.

^^ Scratch that.

I'm trying to go from a 4 pin firewire out on the Canon GL2 to a firewire 800 input on a macbook.

I bought the wrong dongle last time, thinking I understood the 6 pin/4pin/9pin, 400 v. 800 stuff. I don't. Can someone send me a link to a cable that would do the above?
