Is there a FireWire 800 to iPod dock cable?

I have an iPod and ISight and was hoping to hook one up with FW800 and the other with FW400. With the iSight, I would need the FW800 cable to go 9pin to 6pin and still fit in the camera mount thingy.

I don't have an iSight so I'm not sure what you mean by fitting in the mount. Apple sell Belkin cables which are 9-pin to 6-pin in their online store.
I couldn't see any dock connector to 9-pin cables, and I doubt they would sell them as the iPod only works at FW400 speeds at the moment (I think) so there would be no point in selling it apart from the convenience of being able to use the FW400 port for something else.
Does anyone know if there are there any adaptors which change 9-pin to 6-pin? Like the 6 to 4-pin adaptor which comes with the iPod.

Your other option is to get a powered FW400 hub and connect the peripherals to that.
