No matter the subject or setting, adding a good audio track will help your creative video projects. Your video shoots will have a clear, crisp sound thanks to a front speech and audio capture provided by the tiny, lightweight ECM-G1.

High-quality sound from a large-diameter microphone capsule

Despite its overall compact size, the ECM-G1 shotgun microphone is built around a large-diameter (14.6 mm) microphone capsule, designed to provide clear sound capture while effectively suppressing noise. [1] Built-in microphone [2] PCM-D100 [3] ECM-G1

Ideal for clear vocal pickup

The ECM-G1 is particularly suitable for picking up the frequency bands characteristic of human voices. The microphone captures voices in a clear and easily audible manner, for the excellent recording of vlog monologues, interviews and conversations.

Super-cardioid characteristics for highly directional pickup

Just like larger shotgun microphones, the ECM-G1 features a super-cardioid capsule design. This focuses the audio pickup to a narrow target in front of the microphone, suppressing ambient sounds and making it perfect for vlogging and interviews.

Cable-free connection through an MI Shoe

The ECM-G1 connects to and is directly powered by, Sony's compatible cameras via an MI (Multi-Interface) Shoe. In addition to simple connectivity and portability, you’ll enjoy interference and mechanical noise-free shooting, with no need for external cable connections.

Convenient battery-free operation

The MI Shoe of compatible cameras serves to supply power directly to the microphone, so you don't have to worry about microphone batteries running out of charge midway through a shoot.

Shock and vibration suppression

The ECM-G1 incorporates a shock- and vibration-suppressing design that effectively reduces low-frequency vibration noise, including noise when zooming the lens or focusing. The cable-free setup also eliminates the possibility of vibration noise being transmitted through connector cables.

Supplied windscreen for outdoor shoots

The microphone comes with a windscreen that is very effective at reducing wind noise when you're shooting outdoors.
