No, any Firewire cable will do. One end will have to be a four pin plug(to connect to the camcorder), and the other end either a six pin or nine pin, depending on the Firewire socket on your Mac. You can get six pin to nine pin adapters and also Firewire to Thunderbolt adapters if you have TB on your Mac.
