A cable that shouldnot be! – USB to 4-Pin 1394 FireWire Adapter Cable (1.8M) Reviews

An unusual cable combination that isn't something you would expect to see in everyday computing. The price is certainly right, though.
Build quality feels a bit thin, but I haven't had to use it yet so I don't really if this is an issue.
What would you use it for? I got it because I honestly thought I need a FireWire-to-USB connector for an odd model of video camera. Turns out I just needed a different FireWire cable. (Those darn ports look similar in fuzzy photographs...)
I'm still looking for a use for it. But, hey, at this price I'm not complaining. I've just added it to my collection of 'one day I will use these' cables. Eventually, I almost always find a use for every one of them. This cable's turn will come!
