You can shoot to your laptop/iPad camera (or any other digital camera you have for iOS and Android), or you can record your video to an external memory card (you can also plug it into your Mac or PC with a HDMI cable) through your speakers – but if you’re using a Mac, it requires your system to have USB 3.0 ports and be able to see both USB 3.0 and FireWire 800 ports. You can’t have both at the same time.
It’s also not possible to record to a video output via a FireWire 800-enabled port. If you have a Mac or PC with a USB 3.0 port though, you can use a wired or Ethernet connection. However, it’s worth noting that FireWire 800 is not supported by the Apple Camera Connector (ACM) as of OS X v10.9.11 (or greater), which is the version that came out after Camera Connection Kit (CCK) version 1.1 and which included FireWire 800.
How do I connect an iPhone or iPad to my Mac? Using the Camera Connection Kit (CCK), you can connect an iPhone or iPad via the Air port, USB 2.0, Thunderbolt, Gigabit Ethernet, USB port, FireWire, or a FireWire 800 port. In other words, with the CCK, you can connect an iPhone or iPad to a Mac, or vice versa. You also can connect a Mac to an iPhone or iPad for video capture, including audio recording.
There are two things that can screw up capturing and recording from the MacBook Pro Touchpad:
The screen is off. This happens most frequently when the screen on the Touchpad is black (this does not seem to be affected by USB 3.0 or FireWire 800). The MacBook Pro Touchpad is out of sync with the computer’s display, and it must be in sync with the screen of the computer you’re using in order to capture the video you’re trying to record, however you may not get much resolution.
