        Comments about Sony ECM-W1M Wireless Microphone for Cameras with Multi-Interface Shoe:

        If you are a stills shooter who shoots the odd video interview this is a very simple to use and extremely useful accessory to have in the bottom of your stills kit. Its slightly thinner sounding than the Sony UWP-D, but you could, if needed, hide it anywhere in the scene and get some interesting audio, its so tiny!It works flawlessly with my A7S, A7R and RX10. Please note, it definitely is compatible with the RX10 so please disregard the other review here in this forum, he either has a defective mic or camera!

        Comments about Sony ECM-W1M Wireless Microphone for Cameras with Multi-Interface Shoe:

        I use this with my Sony RX100 MK2 camera for industrial videos.

        I didn't want to spend a fortune, and the price is certainly right!

        I have this paired with a RODE NTG2 via an xlr-to-3.5 mm cable. It sounds great, is easy to use and w-a-y better than having to sync up separate video and audio in post.

        My only caveat: be careful. If dropped or stepped on, both the transmitter and receiver look like they may not survive.

        Not that the construction is flimsy, but I would worry about it in a rough-and-tumble production environment.

          Works really well, delivering awesome sound to my A6000. However, it's not compatible with the RX10.

          Comments about Sony ECM-W1M Wireless Microphone for Cameras with Multi-Interface Shoe:

          This product does work pretty well. As another viewer mentioned there is a slight hum, but I'm using this with a Samson wireless system plugged into the top transmitter jack to overcome that. I think with this device I can finally stop using a camcorder/camera system and just carry my A6000.

          Comments about Sony ECM-W1M Wireless Microphone for Cameras with Multi-Interface Shoe:

          This wireless mic works well when hot shoes to my Sony A7 Camera. I tried plugging a Mono lav into it and it makes a humming static noise on the audio. It's good to use for a translator or a two camera shoot when you need to mic up an extra person.

          I love these microphones! I just wish the design of the transmitter would take the shape of a pocket pen. Has all the features you would want! Good battery life. Great range. Good Sound quality! Small in size for both transmitter and receiver.
