External iSight on MBP Early 2015 via Thunderbolt-Firewire adapter?

I want to connect external Apple iSight cammera to my MBP (early 2015) via Apple Thunderbolt-Firewire adapter. Has anyone successfully tried this?

I guess it’s supposed to work, but I’d like to check before buying the adapter. I read in some cases the adapter doesn’t recognise the camera.

I’ve got one hooked up to my 2008 Mac Pro using a Firewire 400 to 800 but have not tried it using Thunderbolt to firewire adapter. I have a MBP 2016 running Mojave and the Firewire 800 to USB C adapter and the 400 to 800 adapter. So later today I will give it a try unless you get a definitive answer.

Mind if I ask what software you are going to use and to what purpose? I have three iSight cameras and would like to set up a security system to utilize them ;-)

@mayer Thank you for your answer.

I mostly use my MBP 2015 in clamshell more. So I need external camera for video chat. I have a spare iSight and wanted to utilse it. But I read that this combo (iSight - 400-800 firewire cable - firewire-Thuderbold - Mac) doesn’t always work.

If you can try it, I’ll be very greateful. :)

It works on a Mac Mini. I’ve tested with FaceTime and MS teams.
