Sony ECM-G1 Ultracompact Camera-Mount Vlogger Shotgun Microphone ($149.99) offers enhanced video recording through high-quality sound collection. The new ECM-G1 was designed for vloggers and video content creators seeking a compact, high-quality microphone. With ambient sound suppression and clear frontal sound collection, creators can enjoy excellent sound quality when capturing content.
Optimized for capturing clear audio for interviews, outdoor street scenes, or just quick updates for social media. ECM-G1’s highly directional supercardioid pickup pattern focuses audio capture narrowly on the subject directly in front of the camera, helping to reject unwanted background sound from the sides and rear. The large 14.6mm mic capsule delivers a full-range sound, rivaling that of a dedicated professional audio recorder like the Sony PCM-D100.
The ECM-G1 offers a 3.5mm output jack for use with a wide variety of DSLR and mirrorless cameras (3.5mm audio cable included). And, of course, the mic is compatible with Sony’s Multi-Interface (MI) shoe, which provides Sony shooters with a cable-free connection for powering and in-camera audio recording. A furry windscreen is included for outdoor shoots.
