Howdie. I was just wondering if its easy to find digital cameras that support firewire nowadays. All this talk about the new iPod not supporting firewire made me realize that maybe its not so easy to find digicams with firewire, and after a quick look on the net, i'm finding that maybe this is true. Can anyone confirm my worries. If that's the case, is there another option for an old mac with Firewire and USB1 to get pictures off a camera at a reasonable rate?

I hope this is the right place to post this, i couldn't find any forums dedicated to photography, this is the closest one...

only uber-high-end dSLRs support firewire, afaik--the eos 1d series comes to mind

Yeah, Only the really really expensive cameras have FireWire... your best option is to get a FireWire Card reader like this:
