thunderbolt 2 to usb c?

Trying to get some old DV footage from an old DV camera. It uses FW400. I bought a FW400 to FW800 adapter. From there I have the original Belkin Thunderbolt express hub that has FW800 in and goes out to thunderbolt 2 I believe. Problem is my MacBook Pro only has USB C. Every thunderbolt to USB C I see says for displays only, not for hard drives which I assume means not for data transfer.

Anyone know of a cheap adapter?

**update**

Never mind, I had an old 27" iMac with thunderbolt 2 at work I took. The DV camera is connected to a FW400 to Fw800 adapter which is plugged into the above Belkin thunderbolt hub. From there it goes to Thunderbolt to the iMac. iMovie saw it normally from there.

It is good to know that setup works!

I have some DV tapes and a Sony camera with FW 400 (i.Link) and will have to go through the same shenanigans whenever I (or my descendants ) get around to doing this.
