The Sony ECM-680 Stereo Shotgun Microphone provides both M/S (Mid-Side) stereo, and mono audio capturing, at the touch of a switch. The electret-condenser, unidirectional (cardioid) ECM-680, features internal M/S decoding for true stereo placement.

In mono mode, the ECM-680 captures audio like a true shotgun microphone, with superb audio rejection and increased range. The wide frequency response, excellent signal-to-noise ratio and wide dynamic range result in pristine audio reproduction. Measuring only 9-inches long, the ECM-680 is an ideal solution for camera mount applications.

    Comments about Sony ECM-680S M/S Stereo Shotgun Microphone:

    We use this microphone on our Sony PDW-F800 camera - it's incredibly clean sounding and rich.

    Two things I'd like to see different though. The first is that the switches are very exposed. I'm concerned about dust, dirt, etc, they should be mounted on the underside of the microphone as it clearly has a top and bottom. The second thing, the windscreen that comes with the microphone doesn't work well - you will want to replace it immediately if you will be using it outdoors.
