I have a 23" Apple Cinema Display (this one - https://support.apple.com/kb/SP79?viewlocale=en_GB&locale=en_GB), a Late 2009 Mac mini and an iSight camera. The display connects to the Mac mini with a Mini-DVI to DVI Adapter. The iSight is Firewire and plugs into the display which connects to the Mac mini with Firewire 400 to 800 adaptor.

Can I connect my display and iSight to the new Mac mini?

Thanks

You will need a TB3 to TB2 dongle feeding a TB2 to Firewire dongle along with a HDMI to DVI adapter.

I haven't tried the iSight camera with Mojave. Software support might be an issue.

I hooked up my FireWire iSight using the TB to FW dongle and it worked in Mojave's FaceTime. Lower resolution than my other cameras.
