click here says IEEE1304 Ilink - that is firewire.

Be sure you get the right cable. There are 4 pin and six pin connections. The camera is likely to be 4 pin whilst your computer (if it has one) will probably be six pin - but check to be sure.

You can buy a firewire PCI card for about £10, and a cable for about £5. Try Ebuyer, Novatech etc.
