The Sony ECM-VG1 Electret Condenser Shotgun Microphone is a rugged, all-metal short shotgun microphone with a super-cardioid polar pattern, making it a well-suited choice for camcorder-mounted and boom pole operation alike. The included windscreen has been designed to maximize wind-noise rejection.


The Sony ECMVG1 windscreen's rigid construction creates space between the microphone and the outer part of the windscreen, minimizing the transfer of energy from the windscreen to the microphone itself. Also included are a microphone boom mount, spacer, 2 stand adaptors and a short XLR cable. A low-cut roll-off switch further minimizes low-frequency noise due to wind noise, mechanical noise and proximity effect. The ECM-VG1 requires external 40 to 52V phantom power and is terminated with an XLR output connector.
