Sony introduces the new small and lightweight ECM-G1 microphone that enhances the standard of video recording through high- quality sound collection. With ambient sound suppression and clear frontal sound collection, users can enjoy excellent sound quality when capturing content.
Enhance standard of video recording with high quality sound
Clear, high-quality sound plays an important role when capturing content for video. The ECM- G1 boasts a large-diameter (approx. 14.6 mm) microphone capsule, providing clear sound collection whilst suppressing noise, greatly improving the quality of video production.
The ECM-G1 is the perfect microphone for vlogging as it captures voices clearly, includes a wind screen to reduce wind noise when shooting outdoors and has an optimised structure to suppress vibration noise with anti-vibration dampers. When connected to a Sony camer a equipped with the Multi Interface (MI) shoe, the cableless design also eliminates cable- transmitted vibration noise.
Ambient sound suppression and clear frontal sound collection
Clear sound collection from in front of the camera is emphasised due to the ECM-G1’s super- cardioid pick up pattern, with ambient noise suppressed to ensure only wanted audio is captured – great for selfie shooting. Even when shooting indoors, the ECM-G1 is highly effective at reducing echo pickup from walls and voice reverberation resulting in clear conversation sound collection.
Enjoy high quality sound anywhere, anytime
MI Shoe support enables greater flexibility with battery-free and cable-free shooting. Power is supplied directly from the camera to the microphone so no issues with the battery running out or cables in the way – even when shooting with the vari-angle LCD monitor open horizontally.
The ECM-G1 is ultra-light, weighing just 34 g, and very compact (W x H x D: 28.0 mm x 50.8 mm x 48.5 mm) so can be used anywhere, anytime.
Lastly, a recording cable is included and the microphone jack is compatible with a wide range of devices, such as cameras and smartphones, giving users the ultimate flexibility for various shooting requirements.
The new ECM-G1 will be available in Australia from August 2022
