Eight audio recording modes in one versatile microphone

Beamforming technology combines four discrete microphone capsules with precision algorithms, to maximise pickup sensitivity in the desired directions while reducing it in others. The result is an incredibly compact and versatile microphone with high performance even in challenging audio environments.

SONY ECM-M1 COMPACT CAMERA-MOUNT DIGITAL SHOTGUN MICROPHONE FEATURES

Simple controls for easy setting and operation

Simply turning a dial on the rear of the microphone allows easy, intuitive selection of pickup patterns and a lock button in the centre prevents accidental changes. Other controls are also straightforward and easy to understand and operate.

 

 

Digital signal processing for quality audio

The ECM-M1 features a complete digital pathway, from beamforming control, to noise filtering and interfacing with the camera. The result is the clearest sound possible, for everything you capture.

Digital noise cut filter for clear sound

Continuous background noise is effectively suppressed by a digital noise-cut filter for clear sound recording. A low-cut filter is also provided to reduce wind noise, the hum of air conditioning and other low-frequency vibration noise. Suppressing noise at the recording stage reduces workload during post processing, enhancing overall efficiency.

 

 

Digital audio interface

The digital audio interface offers an all-digital signal path from microphone to camera, avoiding the noise and distortion associated with analogue transmission and retaining the full benefit of the digital signal processing in the microphone.

Supplied wind screen

The ECM-M1 is supplied with an effective fur-type wind screen, easily detachable, that can reduce wind noise when shooting outdoors.

 

 

Omnidirectional backup safety recording on channels 3 and 4

On compatible cameras, while channels 1 and 2 record with the selected directivity pattern, channels 3 and 4 can make omnidirectional backup safety recordings at different sensitivities (- 20 dB4 for channel 4).

Easy camera connection

Multi Interface (MI) Shoe support allows battery- and cable-free shooting, allowing recording to start as soon as the microphone is attached to the MI Shoe on compatible cameras

 

Dust and moisture resistant design

The ECM-M1 features a dust and moisture resistant6 design that allows reliable operation in challenging outdoor conditions.

Simple switch operation

Comprehensive, clearly marked controls make it easy to adjust and confirm all microphone settings at a glance for worry-free operation
