Description

With an ultralightweight body and smooth tone, the Sony ECM-VG1 shotgun microphone offers strong, clean output signal for event video shoots, indie film production, TV and documentary shooting, court room depositions, and more. Plus, at a mere 2.3 ounces, it can be placed atop a camcorder or mounted on a boompole with virtually no impact on the weight of the rig.
The ECM-VG1 features a supercardioid polar pattern for excellent directivity and minimal noise at the off-axis sections of the capsule, resulting in intelligible voice pickup even in noisy environments. The microphone's wide, flat frequency response yields natural, accurate signal reproduction with crisp detail and minimal coloration.
The ECM-VG1 runs on 40 to 52 VDC phantom power, making it compatible with a variety of professional camcorders, multitrack field recorders, and portable audio recorders. The supplied furry windshield delivers up to 20 dB of wind noise reduction for high-quality audio capture in outdoor environments. It also includes microphone spacers and a mic holder to accommodate camera-mount and stand-/boompole-mount configurations.

Ultralightweight Metal Body

The ECM-VG1 has been designed as a compact and ultralightweight shotgun microphone, measuring 8.3" in length and weighing a mere 2.3 ounces to ensure good balance even when mounted on compact camcorders. Its metal body offers rugged durability to handle the rigors of location recording.

Smooth Frequency Response

With its flat and wide frequency response of 40 Hz to 20 kHz, the ECM-VG1 provides sound reproduction that is smooth and natural.

High Sensitivity

The ECM-VG1 offers an elevated sensitivity of -33 dB and low self-noise level of less than 18 dB SPL, allowing the microphone to be used for clear voice capture even in noisy environments.

Onboard Low-Cut Filter

The onboard two-position (M, V) low-cut switch provides users with a simple method of reducing the effects of undesired ambient noise such as rumble.

Phantom Powered

The ECM-VG1 can be driven by 40 to 52 VDC phantom power for consistent, battery-free operation with professional camcorders, multitrack field recorders, and portable audio recorders.

Furry Windshield

The ECM-VG1 comes with a special furry windshield that has an internal frame to rigidly fix the windshield. This creates a space between the microphone and the outside part of the windshield, helping it achieve up to 20 dB of wind noise reduction. It also protects the ECM-VG1 from contact noise in harsh operational environments such as outdoor shooting.

Included Accessories

The ECM-VG1 is supplied with a short XLR cable, a microphone holder (for use on a boompole or mic stand), two stand adapters, and a microphone spacer (for attachment to a camcorder's mic holder).
