This may be a common question or has already featured on this site in the past?.
I am no longer able to log and capture in Final Cut Pro via my Sony Z1 camera (Video deck) through FireWire and am begininng to think that the FireWire port has totally gone within the Z1 for some reason??
One thing I did do to my haste was to insert the 6-pin end of the Firewire Cable into my scratch hard drive the wrong way around before realising I inserted it wrongly but would this be enough to cause damage to the FireWire port and board within the Z1 camera?
I do not use the AC Adapter from the mains when logging and capturing camera - just run it from it's batteries. as I'm aware that this has caused problems in the past.
If anybody has had similar problems with the Z1 - FCP logging and capturing or FireWire problems and can identify my problem then I would really appreciate it if you could share your thoughts.
Many thanks and Happy easter
