I did some Googling and came up with this knowledge base article from Phase One. http://www.phaseone.com/Search/Article.aspx?articleid=1256&languageid=1

Seems like there is an issue with using Thunderbolt adapters for Firewire connection to the PhaseOne back. The simple fix is to switch the back to use its own battery instead of relying on the Firewire for power supply.

Going to try this tomorrow.


Or an ac powered firewire hub such as below:

I wanted to thank everyone who provided great advise on this topic and gave me a good foundation to start off from. Just wanted to mention a special thanks to Anders for hand holding me through this purchase.

Went shooting this morning and got a few good ones. Attached one here (Its amateurish, but I love being one :))

Still learning to use the Mamiya as it is much older than the current slew of DSLRs but a force to be reckoned with, nevertheless.

Now onto a technical camera, but I don't see that happening for another 5 - 6 months. Until then, I'll get used to the current setup.

Rest assured I will be back asking more questions when the time comes. In the meantime, I once again thank the great community here who are extremely willing to help and have a sane and meaty discussion.

Cheers,
Arv
