The ECMALST1 Compact Stereo Mic improves the in-camera audio capture of the α (Alpha) Series DSLR cameras, including α560L, α580L, α55, and α33 models. A switch for 90° and 120° pickup patterns allows you to adjust the directivity of the microphone.
The ECMALST1 connects to the α DSLR camera's Smart Accessory Terminal for mounting and plugs into the 3.5mm stereo mini jack. A movie function accommodates dynamic sound recorded during video clips. The included windscreen cuts down not only on environmental noise but on the operational noises of the lens and camera, such as autofocus movement.
Directivity of the microphone is selectable between 90° and 120°
