Apple’s long awaited Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter is now available for purchase on Apple’s online store for $29.00. If you decide to make a purchase, the product currently has a one-to-three day shipment estimate.
This product was first announced at Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference around the middle of June alongside the Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter. While the Gigabit Ethernet Adapter launched right away, the Firewire adapter is now just launching.
To those who used Firewire, the waiting period Apple went through was horrid. The new Macbooks launched lacking many ports past models had featured. So in a nutshell, Firewire users had to resort to older laptops to complete work.

The price point sounds quite expensive to me, but of course this is Apple we’re talking about. Let me know in the comments if you will be purchasing one.
