The ECM-CG60 from Sony is a pro-quality supercardioid, electret- condenser, monaural shotgun microphone that can be used to capture audio in several environments for devices such as video cameras, DSLRs, camcorders, and more.
Some of the features for the ECM-CG60 are that it is designed to improve sound collection within areas of narrow range to pick up targeted sound. For instance, there is a low cut filter that reduces unwanted noise. Also, there is a switch that can select between Norm for picking up natural sound within low-to-high tone ranges, or Low Cut for effectively cutting low tone to reduce wind noise and noise from vibration and air conditioners.
In addition, the ECM-CG60 is powered by an AA alkaline battery, or it can be powered by the mic input jack (plug-in power) on your camera. This mic is built for pro-quality cameras and camcorders equipped with a 3.5mm mic input jack and easily attaches to your industry standard cold shoe.
Enjoy natural, smooth sound quality with an extended frequency response, low noise, and wide dynamic range. The ECM-CG60 is convenient for shooting movies with compact cameras, camcorders, and interchangeable-lens cameras without entering the frame
Built for cameras and camcorders that use a 3.5mm mini audio input jack, this microphone is also supplied with a shoe adaptor that attaches directly to your camera or camcorder’s standard accessory shoe
More Audio and 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
