length of permissible firewire cable

I'm going to get Formac's Studio DV to transfer some VHS and similar
stuff to DVD or QT movies on my G4. It would be easier to leave all the
video equipment where it is, but that's 40 feet from the G4 setup.
would there be appreciable signal deterioration with a 40 ft firewire
cable? Does such a cable exist? I've only seen firewire cables up to
4.5 meters.

Thanks
