The Sony ECM-W1M Wireless Microphone is designed specifically for Sony cameras and camcorders that feature the proprietary Multi-Interface Shoe. The microphone comprises two components: a transmitter and a receiver. They communicate wirelessly with each other using Bluetooth technology and feature a range of up to 100', depending on conditions. With the receiver attached to your camera it is still possible to capture additional audio using the camera's built-in microphone. In addition, audio picked up by the camera can be relayed back to the transmitter. The transmitter features a headphone jack that allows the camera operator to communicate with the person wearing the transmitter by speaking into the camera's microphone. There is also a headphone jack on the receiver so that the camera operator can monitor audio even if the camera itself doesn't provide a headphone out of its own. Finally, the transmitter features a 3.5mm mic input allowing you to use a third-party microphone rather than the built-in one.

The transmitter can either clip on your belt, or be worn using the included elastic arm band

    If you are a stills shooter who shoots the odd video interview this is a very simple to use and extremely useful accessory to have in the bottom of your stills kit. Its slightly thinner sounding than the Sony UWP-D, but you could, if needed, hide it anywhere in the scene and get some interesting audio, its so tiny!It works flawlessly with my A7S, A7R and RX10. Please note, it definitely is compatible with the RX10 so please disregard the other review here in this forum, he either has a defective mic or camera!

    This wireless mic works well when hot shoes to my Sony A7 Camera. I tried plugging a Mono lav into it and it makes a humming static noise on the audio. It's good to use for a translator or a two camera shoot when you need to mic up an extra person.

    Does not work with Sony HDR-CX900

        Comments about Sony ECM-W1M Wireless Microphone for Cameras with Multi-Interface Shoe:

        I really wanted this system to work with my Sony HDR-CX900. However, the audio quality was not very good. There was a prevalent hiss in the audio recording which could be easily reduced without damaging the recorded voice portions of the file.

              Comments about Sony ECM-W1M Wireless Microphone for Cameras with Multi-Interface Shoe:

              I use this with my Sony RX100 MK2 camera for industrial videos.

              I didn't want to spend a fortune, and the price is certainly right!

              I have this paired with a RODE NTG2 via an xlr-to-3.5 mm cable. It sounds great, is easy to use and w-a-y better than having to sync up separate video and audio in post.

              My only caveat: be careful. If dropped or stepped on, both the transmitter and receiver look like they may not survive.

              Not that the construction is flimsy, but I would worry about it in a rough-and-tumble production environment.

                This product does work pretty well. As another viewer mentioned there is a slight hum, but I'm using this with a Samson wireless system plugged into the top transmitter jack to overcome that. I think with this device I can finally stop using a camcorder/camera system and just carry my A6000.
