Not 100% sure, but sincerely doubt it.

They are generally for computers with graphics cards. I actually am guessing it is not thunderbolt, though they use the same port, mini display ports are not thunderbolt.

Hi,

This won't work. These adapters are Mini DisplayPort adapters, not ThunderBolt as such. These will only work coming from a computer. The data that the Camera, or any of our ThunderBolt devices is outputting is quite different to what these adapters will work with.

To get video out of the Camera's ThunderBolt port it must be connected to a computer, which will allow you to capture video, or use UltraScope software to view waveform, vectorscope etc.
