 You need to make sure that you belong to the user group video. If you
need to change the permissions so that they persist from one session to
the next you can do so in the
file /etc/udev/permissions.d/udev.permissions
I believe the problem is with the kernels and udevs  incomplete
(Currently) ie1394 support. I believe its important to make sure you
have read write access.
