Dennis, I can die for a Brevis HD Imaging Bundle now but I live in Turkey and ordering it online seems impossible from here. Please work with a distributor in Turkey or tell me that you are going to visit this beautiful country very soon :) Just kidding. But I really wonder how I get chance to buy your product.

Phil, burned out the firewire port on my deck a couple of years ago. Same issue.
Looking forward to your posting.

my replacement mac pro has just been fried. The only thing I plugged in was the XDCAM F350.

I think I have just worked out the problem.

my cat!

She loves cables and I try to keep her out of the edit suite but she sometimes sneaks in. The cable I used has a small nick in it. I am sure power is leaking into the rest of the cable.

It is the only thing I can think of!

Phil,

The new mac has now got the same problem??? Oh, sorry to hear that man!

Although, I can confirm about your cat, it was being a right pain when I was there, it was biting the SGpro and got hair all over me (i love cats really)...

Hi Wayne!

It was my other cat who is the Mac killer. I think she is being paid by Bill Gates!

I am going to have to junk all my firewire cables and just buy some new ones.

How on earth do I explain this one to Applecare. I am sure if I tell them my cat fried my mac they won't be best pleased!

Instead of sending your mac back again... get this or the PCMCIA version if you've got an old mac laptop.

Sorry, this could be a bit off-topic, but I'm a beginner, and I wonder if the Letus35A can be compared to those 3 adaptaters... Is it as good or worse ? (sorry for my bad english...)

I had letus flip enhanced. I couldnt get clean enough pictures out of it so I sold it and bought the m2 and brevis. Maybe I had a duff one I dont know but I couldn't recommend it from my personal experience. Other people may have had better experiences
