The Sony ECM-674/9X Shotgun Microphone provides professional level signal reproduction while remaining cost effective. The ECM-674/9X's compact size, audio character and sensitivity result in the level of performance suitable for use with professional and semi-professional video cameras.

The ECM-674/9X features a supercardioid polar pattern for excellent directivity and minimal noise at the off-axis sections of the capsule. The result is a detailed, audible signal while used in noisy environments. The microphone provides a wide, flat frequency response which results in smooth, accurate signal reproduction with crisp detail and no added coloration. The ECM-674/9X is powered with an internal AA-size battery or external 48-volt phantom power.

The ECM-674/9X's size and sound quality make it an excellent choice for event video shoots, film, documentary shooting, court room depositions, etc.

        Comments about Sony ECM-674/9X Electret Condenser Shotgun Microphone:

        When used with Rycote softie, this mic works very well, both on location in the bush and surprisingly in a studio situation.
        Solidly made and the rubber mount flange fits the Sony PMW 200, there is no operational sounds picked up during filming.
        I would say a good allrounder for the price.

          This is one of THE BEST short shotgun mics for the price. Especially if you already have Sony gear...It works well with other Sony equipment. Better than mics twice the price.

            I used this mic on a Sony ex1r, shooting on the roof of an apartment in NY during a very windy day. The mic did an amazing job. When I watched the footage I was sure the actors were wearing wireless mics. The mic is just superb.

                Comments about Sony ECM-674/9X Electret Condenser Shotgun Microphone:

                Using the standard in camera microphonone on a sony gives you great sound coverage, but if you are shooting in a crowded room, reception hall or are far from the subject the ECM-674/9X is a must have. I used it to shoot a wedding this weekend and don't know how I ever did without it. Of course you'd still need the wireless for other parts of the event, but do yourself, and your costumers a favor, and get one of these.
                If you are shooting outside, be sure to use the wind buffer even if is not windy.

                  Comments about Sony ECM-674/9X Electret Condenser Shotgun Microphone:

                  I purchased this unit and a DLX Universal Shock Mount with camerca shoe for use on my Panasonic AG-HMC 70 HD camcorder.

                  I purchased this unit after purchasing a Sennheiser MK 400 stereo shotgun mike. The Sennheiser could not stand up to the wear and tear of recording among a group of news who were all elbows who managed to rip the microphone from its shock mount twice.

                  The ECM-674 produces way better sound. However, I am forced on many occasions to use the camera's built in attenuators because the unit is picking up way too much sound. However, this is a great advantage when the source is soft with low sound levels. Works well with either a "AA" battery or with phatom power provided by camera.

                  You definitely need the shock mount with camera shoe.

                  In the wind, the microphone picks up wind noise. The wind screen helps, but it is not perfect.
