            Comments about Sony ECM-NV1 Directional Microphone for DSR-PD170:

            I've been around this mic that came with the DSR-PD150/170 camera for years. It's awful. If it was any good, Sony would have continued to use it with the HVR-Z5U/Z7U cameras when they came out. Instead, they switched to the ECM-XM1 because it sounds much better. Don't buy this garbage.

                Look, this isn't going to beat a Sennheiser MKH416... or even an ME66. But what this does is become the perfect on-camera mic for cameras like the new Panasonic AC130/160... or the Canon XF series. The sound is totally adequate for run and gun applications, and it's small size makes it ideal for just about every manufacturer's camera. Even with a wide angle lens, you won't see it.

                Warning: needs phantom power.

                Comments about Sony ECM-NV1 Directional Microphone for DSR-PD170:

                This mic is used as original equipment on several Sony camcorders including my V1U. The original mic was smashed as I was moving through thick forest. The element cage is thin plastic and it doesn't take much to break it. I looked at other replacement mics but this seemed to be the best bang for the buck.
