Sony Launches Shotgun Microphone ECM-G1 Perfect for Vlogging

New Microphone Offers High Quality Sound, Anywhere, Anytime
Sony introduces the new small and lightweight ECM-G1 microphone that enhances the standard of video recording through high-quality sound collection. With ambient sound suppression and clear frontal sound collection, users can enjoy excellent sound quality when capturing content.

Enhance standard of video recording with high quality sound
Clear, high-quality sound plays an important role when capturing content for video. The ECM-G1 boasts a large-diameter (approx. 14.6 mm) microphone capsule, providing clear sound collection whilst suppressing noise, greatly improving the quality of video production.

The ECM-G1 is the perfect microphone for vlogging as it captures clear voices, includes a wind screen to reduce wind noise when shooting outdoors and has an optimised structure to suppress frequency vibration noise with anti-vibration dampers. When connected to a Sony camera equipped with the Multi Interface (MI) shoe, the cable- less design even eliminates cable-transmitted vibration noise.

Ambient sound suppression and clear frontal sound collection
Clear sound collection from in front of the camera is emphasized with super-cardioid [i] and ambient sound suppressed to ensure only wanted audio is captured – great for selfie shooting. Even when shooting indoors, the ECM-G1 is highly effective at reducing echo pickup from walls and voice reverberation resulting in clear conversation sound collection.

Enjoy high quality sound anywhere, anytime
MI Shoe support enables greater flexibility with battery-free and cable-free shooting. The power is supplied directly from the camera to the microphone so no issues with the battery running out or cables in the way – even when shooting with the vari-angle LCD monitor open horizontally.

The ECM-G1 is ultra light, weighing just 34 g, and very compact (W x H x D: 28.0 mm x 50.8 mm x 48.5 mm) so can be used anywhere, anytime.

Lastly, a recording cable [ii] is included for ease and the microphone jack [iii] is compatible [iv] with a wide range of devices [v], such as cameras and smartphones, giving users the ultimate flexibility for various shooting requirements.

Pricing and Availability
The new ECM-G1 will be available in September 2022 at a variety of Sony’s authorised dealers, for an estimated retail price of €170 EUROS.
