    You have to wait until July, when the Thunderbolt-Firewire adapter is available, or you buy one of those expensive Thunderbolt hubs with Firewire.

    They announced it along with a TB to gigabit ethernet adapter durring the event for the Retina MacBook Pro. It's mentioned at the bottom of Apple's thunderbolt page with the Thunderbolt Ready Devices under adapters.

    Have you found a way to connect to Lion. My MacBook Pro will no longer recognize my camera. I was told it's no longer compatible now that Apple has upgraded to Lion.

    What exact Mac and Mac OS X version do you use? What exact camera model do you have, if it is not the XHA1? What software do you use? What cable do you use?
