Hi ,

i am thinking of buying a Macbook AIR, ( because of the W8, 1kg for the 13 inch)..
But when i would shoot thethered with my phase one, via a firewire adapter on the Thunderbolt port, ..
Would this work ?...

Theoretically, but it has never been tested, hopefully we will be able to soon, announcements has been made for Thunderbolt -> Firewire but we have yet to see one.

IQ backs will work on USB port.

Thanks, Ulf,
Yes i already thought the IQ would work with USB,
But i've got a P45+, ( bought it when the IQ came out, :p just because the sensor was bigger and at that moment within budget)...

Plus IQ's are just just just getting deliverd in france apparently.. but one drop at a time :)...

So i think i would update to an IQ within a year or within an 8 months, but, for now the P45+ is my only hope :) :p

Any way thanks for your awnser... I think from the moment adapters are out i will risk it :)
Thanks
Ju

Hi,
Sonnet just released this: http://www.sonnettech.com/product/echoe ... rbolt.html

Combined with a Fire wire Express card it could be a winner, ..
even combined with a Express card - CF card reader it could be monster!
