Capture clear, beautiful audio whenever and wherever you shoot, adding a high-quality audio track will bring your creative work to life with the ECM-G1.
Excellent for Recording Human Voices
The ECM-G1 is well suited to the frequency bands of human voice characteristics, capturing vocal audio clearly and distinctly. It's ideal for shooting vlogs of product reviews and interviews.
Large-diameter, 14.6mm Microphone Capsule
A larger capsule for high-quality sound. Built around a large-diameter (14.6 mm) microphone capsule, the ECM-G1 provides a high-quality audio track similar to high-end dedicated audio recorders, with clear, clean sound capture and effective noise suppression.
Wind Screen for Trouble-Free Outdoor Shooting
The ECM-G1 comes with an easily detachable wind screen that can reduce wind noise when shooting outdoors under windy conditions.
The vibration-suppressing design of the ECM-G1 helps reduce minor bumps and mechanical noise, such as when focusing or zooming. When connected via Multi Interface (MI) Shoe, the cable-free setup eliminates any possibility of cable-transmitted vibration noise.
Highly Directional, Compact Shotgun Design
The highly directional, compact shotgun design of the ECM-G1 has a super-cardioid pickup for front-focused audio capture. This is ideal for isolating audio directly in front of the camera, ideal for vlogging, interviews and reviews.
Small Enough To Stay Out Of Your Way
Compact, unobtrusive design. At 1.34-inch (34mm) in length and 1.2 oz. (34g) in weight, the ECM-G1 is highly portable and ready to bring along to any shoot location. The clever design needs no dangling cables, and it stays out of the way of both the viewfinder and your framed shot even with wide-angle lenses making it ideal for tight vlogging shots.
Small Enough To Stay In Place
Leave your microphone attached and ready to use at a moment's notice. The unit's light weight 1.2 oz. (34 g) provides flexibility and mobility when you're shooting so much so that there's no need to detach and reattach it between shoots. The back of the microphone won't touch your forehead when you're looking through the viewfinder, and setup is easy even with gimbals and grips.
Connecting the microphone via a compatible MI (Multi-Interface) Shoe means you don't have to worry about noise being transmitted mechanically through cable connections or cables getting in the way of your shot, for greater portability when shooting.
When you attach the ECM-G1 to the MI (Multi-Interface) Shoe of any of Sony's compatible cameras, power is supplied directly from the camera to the microphone. This lets you handle extended shooting sessions free of concerns about the microphone battery running out.
A 3.5mm Audio Out Jack for Expanded Connectivity Options
The ECM-G1 also comes with a 3.5mm audio jack and cable for use on compatible recording devices and cameras that don’t have a MI Shoe.
