    Apple Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter is $35. That's firewire 800, so you then need a 4-pin Firewire 400 to 9-pin Firewire 800 cable, for $5-10. Easy.

    Yes, it is possible. LEDs do emit some infrared light, just nowhere near as much as a tungsten lamp.

    Ive had great success with 4x4" Schneider Platinum IRND filters on my AC160, but those are eye-wateringly expensive.

    Get a cheap 49mm filter, like a UV or skylight, and remove (or smash) the glass out of it. Now you essentially have a 49mm to 49mm ring, that will give you enough distance from the housing for a...

    Even indoors under tungsten light, with no ND filtration (internal or external) the AC160 shows a lot more infrared contamination than the GH2. I expect the the AC90 is similar.

    If you do a long pan, the OIS is trying to fight the panning movement. Once it runs out of room to travel, it skips. Solution: put the camera on a good fluid-head tripod and switch OIS off.

    My newly acquired AC160A with the latest firmware pre-installed still has the odd naming of DV files. So don't expect the upgrade to change that.

    I have the same monitor, and if set to B&W or blue only using the "FUN" button, changing the saturation immediately pops it back to colour. Are you sure you're not set to the B&W mode?

    I would look for something 3.5mm and then adapt it to 2.5mm for the camera... finding a 2.5mm stereo to dual mono will probably be much harder!
    So in that case, you'd want a Hosa YMM261.

    Stay away from anything damaged at a school, especially older plastic autofocus lenses. Most repair places won't even want to touch these at all.
