hi i have this camcorder Canon ZR90 and i have a powerbook G4 12" 1.33GHZ
its not my camcorder its my friends but i want to connect it to my powerbook using a firewire cord. What cord do i buy? i have no idea if i need 4pin - 6pin or 6pin - 6pin and so forth.
Also if i hook up my camcorder can i edit the footage using final cut express. I got this program from school for a good price since school discount rocks and i just editted various video files to get a feel for the program and i was converting a 50sec clip using quicktime conversion (i have no idea what conversion settings to pick) and it took an hour. is that normal? how do i make it faster.

You need a 4 pin to 6 pin firewire cable. The 4 pin side will connect to the camera and the 6 pin will connect to the powerbook. Yes, you can offload and edit your movie in Final Cut Express.Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, It's about learning to dance in the rain!
