SVHS has it right. A Firewire is standard equipment in digital video world.
They come in a few sizes just like USB does, so look out. There are 4-pin and 6-pin configurations. Most DV cams have a 4-pin input on them. So we want a Firewire with one end that fits a “4”. But computers have 6-pin OR 4-pin attachments. Depending on your computer, you’ll want to ask for a “Four pin- to- Four pin Firewire”, or a “Six pin- to- four pin Firewire”
