Expanded Sony ECM-G1 Wireless Shotgun Microphone Key Features:

High-Quality Sound Recording

This Sony microphone features a frontal sound collection system that provides clear sound recordings and captures low-frequency bands that characterize human voices. It makes the ECM-G1 a perfect vlogging microphone for selfie videos or for adding to your podcasting equipment to capture the voices of friends and guests.

The ECM-G1 has a large-diameter microphone capsule of 14.6mm so provides clear sound whilst suppressing noise. Thanks to the included windscreen and anti-vibration structure, wind and vibration noise are drastically reduced. If using the microphone with a Sony camera equipped with a Multi-Interface shoe, you can record without cables causing unwanted vibrations.

Frontal Sound Collection

Designed with a supercardioid pickup pattern, the compact microphone suppresses ambient sound while emphasising sounds in front of the camera. This is ideal for self-shooting or recording other sounds in front of your camera when streaming. A super-cardioid pattern provides better isolation from room noise and nearby sounds, and picks up the best sound from directly in front of the mic. The ECM-G1 is also capable of reducing echoes and voice reverberation when shooting indoors, ensuring dialogue and voices are always clear.

Compact and Portable

This lightweight and compact cable-free microphone weighs only 34g, providing greater mobility and ease of use when shooting with gimbals. With this cable-free mic, you get a battery- and cable-free experience for greater mobility. When you are on the go, you don't want to worry about battery life, which makes the camera microphone ideal for outdoor use, vlogging, and content creation. A 3.5mm audio cable is also included to easily record with a variety of devices; from smartphones to professional cameras.

What is the benefit of MI Shoe compatibility, and how does it work?

When connected to the MI Shoe of a compatible Sony camera, power is supplied directly from the camera to the microphone. Whilst this means you can record extended shoots without worrying about battery life, the lack of cables means you also don’t have to worry about cables making noises or getting in the way of the shot.

What is a supercardioid pickup pattern?

A microphone with a supercardioid pickup pattern is extremely directional from where the mic is pointing. This makes supercardioid microphones popular in film and video as it excels at recording dialogue and voicework. It provides better isolation from room noise and background noise but it requires the source of the sound to be directly in front of the microphone throughout the whole recording.
