I just got my Camera and I would like to connect it to my laptop to download video.

My laptop has a 1394 firewire jack but i have never used firewire before.

Is there a recommended firewire cable for use with the Panasonic DVX100A? and a place to order it from?

any cable will do.. as long as its not longer than 15'. I buy my cables from startech.com

I use Monster . . . but only because it makes me feel cool to be able to say that. ;)

Thanks for the feedback, I ran out and bought the Monster cable from Ciruit City at lunch.

With a dv smart hub or repeter, you will get 15' more.

May be too late but make sure you have the right connectors - 4 pin for the DVX and either 4 pin or 6 pin for the laptop.
