Customer Question
I am trying to...

I am trying to download a movie I made on a Panasonic NVGS150 onto my MacBook air and It isn't working. Any suggestions how I can make this happen

Technician's Assistant: How old is your NVGS150?

17years

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your NVGS150?

I bought a firewire to USB cable but it doesn't seem to register on the computer.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Camera Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of at the moment.

I have the 400 firewire cable but can't use it with my computer.
Camera and Video Technician: Ashik, Camera/Camcorder Helper replied 8 months ago

You need to buy Thunderbolt 2 to Firewire adapter. The firewire on that adaater will be 800

So you will also need another adapter that convert from Firewire 800 to 400. Then it will work. You will need to use a program like iMovie to capture video from this camera

If you have any questions or would like any additional information, please don't hesitate to ask.
