    Firewire cable for P45+

    I've just got a pre owned P45+, but the back didn't came with a firewire cable. I saw there is one from Tether Tools which is about 2x cheaper than the P1 cable selling at Adorama. Does anyone using the Tether tools cable with their P1 backs?

    I managed to buy a $10 cord from ebay that is fw400 to fw800 and it has worked great for my needs.

    I can't seem to find the link though.. the company made a lot of different cables..

    Other FW cords may work; the Phase One FW cord is supposed to be a higher quality cord. In the scheme of things (like a good CF memory card) this probably is not the place to skimp, and it's not like it's gonna break the bank.

    I have just acquired a Sinar 54H digital back, which the seller demonstrated for me, first on his P3 and then on mine.

    He had tired several firewire cables and only found one that worked... the only firewire 400/800 cable I had was the one that came with my Hasselblad H3D11-50, and it was only compatible after I had borrowed a kitchen knife from the vendor and pared down the digiback end of it.

    I will be needing top quality 30ft 400/800 and 800/800 fire wire cables for use on my Sinar 54H and Hasselblad H4D-60 on my 10m tripod.

    ¿What to buy? UK?
