The Sony ECM-MS2 Stereo Electret Condenser Microphone is designed for mounting on professional camcorders equipped with 2 XLR inputs and phantom powering. The microphone also delivers good sound performance in field and studio production applications. The MS microphone signal of the ECM-MS2 microphone is internally decoded, and provides L and R (stereo) outputs. The MS2 stereo microphone also supports mono operation by simply unplugging the right channel (disabling phantom power from the right channel XLR connector).

Compact Design
The compact 5.39" (137mm) length of the microphone prevents inadvertent vignetting of the microphone when it is attached to a handheld professional camcorder such as the PMW-100. Additionally, this short length is convenient when packing and transporting the microphone with a compact camcorder.
Stereo & Mono Operation
The microphone offers mono operation when stereo is not required, simply by cutting off the power supply to the right channel; for example, when a wireless microphone system is connected on 1 channel or while recording environmental sounds on the other channel. The microphone is designed for applications such as news gathering and documentary shooting on location.
Excellent Quality
Professional quality is assured by the XLR3P outputs, which enable connection to professional camcorders for 48 V phantom powering. The microphone's metal body also enhances audio performance by blocking vibration, resonance, and RF noises.
Handy Accessory
The supplied furry windscreen is used to suppress the strong wind present in typical harsh-climate operating conditions. A cable tie is also supplied to fasten the unplugged microphone cable during mono operation.
Compatibility
This microphone is compatible with PMW-100, NEX-FS700, and HXR-NX30 Camcorders

        Great external mic for small cameras. It fits perfectly on my Sony PMW 100. This small camera requires a small shotgun. The pick-up pattern works very well. Also, there are two XLR connectors for left and right channels. A little mic for a little camera!

          Comments about Sony ECM-MS2 Stereo Electret Condenser Microphone:

          This is an affordable and compact microphone for handheld camcorders. Much better stereo quality then the built in mic on the camcorder. Reasonably priced for a professional mic. Interesting and unique supplied furry windscreen. The XLR cables are somewhat long, and I had to use the cable tie. Since this was a special order item, it took four weeks for me to get it.
