The ECM-G1 new shotgun microphone offers high-quality sound, anywhere, anytime and is a perfect companion for vlog content.
Sony introduces the new small and lightweight ECM-G1 microphone that enhances the standard of video recording through the high-quality sound collection. With ambient sound suppression and clear frontal sound collection, users can enjoy excellent sound quality when capturing content.
Enhance the 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 windscreen 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 camera 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 pickup 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 selected countries in the Asia Pacific from August 2022.
