Details & Highlights

Product Highlights

    Almost every interchangeable lens camera today will record exceptional HD video, and while the images may be amazing, your videos could fall flat with 1 dimensional sound. With a compact body that 15 percent shorter than the current model, the high–performance Sony Shotgun Microphone accurately picks up targeted sound while blocking ambient clutter and camera zoom noise. Keep it charged with a single AAA battery or plugged into your camera 3.5mm port.

    ECM–CG60 Shotgun Microphone

    Record audio with unrivaled sensitivity and accuracy with this electret condenser monaural shotgun microphone. This high quality microphone with supercardioid directivity, improves sound collection within areas of narrow range to pick up targeted sound — not surrounding noise. Built for high–end cameras and camcorders equipped with MIC in jack, easily attaches to industry standard cold shoe.

    Pro–Quality Performance

    Enjoy rich, smooth sound quality with an extended frequency response, low noise and wide dynamic range. More compact and approx. 15% shorter than the previous model (ECM–CG50), the ECM–CG60 is convenient for shooting movies with compact cameras, camcorders and interchangeable–lens cameras without entering the frame.

    Sound That Pinpoints Your Subject

    Your camera or camcorder's built–in microphone can struggle to pick up clear dialogue and foreground sounds. This high quality 'shotgun' type mic focuses on sounds in a narrrow (supercardioid directivity) pattern in front of the camera to isolates direct sound sources.

    Wide Compatibility And Easy Mounting

    Built for cameras and camcorders that use a 3.5mm mini audio output jack, this microphone is also supplied with a shoe adaptor that attaches directly to your camera or camcorder's standard accessory shoe.

    More Audio, Less Noise

    Enjoy far better results than your camera or camcorder's built–in microphone. The low cut mode reduces unwanted low frequencies, while the mounting isolator cuts distracting mechanical noise from the camera and lens. There's also a supplied windshield that reduces noise in gusty conditions outdoors.

    Normal Or Low Cut

    The ECM–CG60 features a convenient switch which can select between NORM: for picking up natural sound within low–to–high tone range or LOW CUT for effectively cutting low tones to reduce wind noise and noise from vibration and air conditioners.

    Power Options

    The ECM–CG60 has two options for power; AA alkaline battery or the camera's battery via MIC input jack. There's a convenient battery check lamp that momentarily lights up when sliding the switch from OFF to ON to indicate that there is remaining battery power when powered by an alkaline battery. Note: The lamp does not light up when the microphone is powered by the camera.
