The Sony ECM-VG1 Electret Condenser Shotgun Microphone is perfect for professional field and studio uses. The rugged, all-metal design is ideal for boom pole or camera mounting. The included windscreen has a specially designed frame and reduces wind noise significantly.

High Quality Sound Reproduction

With a flat-and-wide frequency response of 40 Hz to 20 kHz andan excellent sensitivity of -33 dB, the microphone delivers exceptionally smooth and natural sound reproduction. The supercardioidpickup pattern focuses on audio directly in front of the mic, while minimising off-axis sound.

Innovatively Designed High Quality Windscreen

The included windscreen has a specially designed rigid internal frame that creates a gap between it and the microphonefor superior wind noise reduction. A built-inlow-cut switch supresses the effects of unwanted ambient noise even further.

Compact and Extremely Lightweight

Small in size and verylightweight, the microphone maintains good balance when mounted on compact camcorders and is also well-suited for use attached to a boom pole.
