Firewire 800 and the CFH back


New Member
got a bit of a question that no-one can seem to answer..... I have the CFH back on the H2 and am wanting to connect to my G5 and powermac however the cable that came with the back is a firewire 800 to 400. Does anyone know if the camera back will accept the speed of a firewire 800? or is it limited to the 400 speed only.
Thanks Nick. I have spoken to many "professionals" and they told me that it was impossible to get firewire 800 working at distances more than 5 meters so no-one sells the cables in Europe!! Thanks for the heads up with granitedigital.
