If you are doing analog capture on firewire you are just doing the conversion from analog = digital outside the computer. The quality you get depends on how much you spent. Im sure if you compared a 150$ converter box that uses firewire to one of those 20$ usb video capture things your quality would be much better, but thats more because of price and quality than if its firewire or usb or internal.
It just sound like some people are saying firewire is a capture format, it is just a data cable & port. Same as usb or even pci if using a capture card. Its just a method of moving data, the quality will be as good or bad the device capturing the video.
