Join Nick Brigadier as he discusses the specs, tests, and compares three of the Sony ECM shotgun microphones: the ECM-G1, ECM-B10, and ECM-B1M. See how these three mics sound when filming on the busy, noisy streets of New York, as well as how they compare to each other!
The Sony ECM-G1 Ultracompact Camera-Mount Vlogger Shotgun Microphone is an on-camera microphone optimized for the content creator, since its small size and vibration-suppressing features work in a variety of situations.
The Sony ECM-B10 Compact Camera-Mount Digital Shotgun Microphone was designed for content creators, podcasters, and videographers. It captures crystal-clear speech, interviews, ambience, or sounds in nature settings. It features three selectable pickup patterns: super, uni, and omnidirectional.
The Sony ECM-B1M Camera-Mount Digital Shotgun Microphone is equipped with eight high-performance mic capsules and advanced digital signal processing, providing three selectable directivity patterns (supercardioid, cardioid, and omnidirectional) for a wide range of shooting and recording situations.
