Sony ECM-W1M overview

  • 1Description

The Sony ECM-W1M Wireless Microphone is designed specifically for Sony cameras and camcorders that feature the proprietary Multi-Interface Shoe. The microphone comprises two components: a transmitter and a receiver. They communicate wirelessly with each other using Bluetooth technology and feature a range of up to 100', depending on conditions. With the receiver attached to your camera it is still possible to capture additional audio using the camera's built-in microphone. In addition, audio picked up by the camera can be relayed back to the transmitter. The transmitter features a headphone jack that allows the camera operator to communicate with the person wearing the transmitter by speaking into the camera's microphone. There is also a headphone jack on the receiver so that the camera operator can monitor audio even if the camera itself doesn't provide a headphone out of its own. Finally, the transmitter features a 3.5mm mic input allowing you to use a third-party microphone rather than the built-in one.

The transmitter can either clip on your belt, or be worn using the included elastic arm band
Includes windscreen to help reduce wind noise when filming outdoors
Includes two earphones for monitoring audio and a pouch to store everything in
For Sony cameras and camcorders with Multi-Interface Shoe
Transmitter powers from a single AAA battery; receiver power directly from the camera
Corresponds to "5.1-channel Center Mic" mode

    Sony ECM-W1M reviews

    ECM-W1M Wireless Microphone for Cameras with Multi-Interface Shoe is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 36.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Wireless Mic option for Sony Camcorders I have owned and tried many wireless microphones from ancient Azden ones, through Ampridge ones, this is the best option for convenience and cost. The powered nature of Sony's hot shoe means you only have to have one charged AAA battery for the transmitter. It's small size makes it convenient to transport and it's quality is as good as any other Bluetooth Mic to be found. So, while a $1,100 Sennheiser AVX Digital Wireless Microphone is certainly a better system, this is the more reasonable option. So, if you have a Sony Camcorder, this is a no brainer purchase for cost, convenience and portability.-*

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from -20 hiss/hum in background when used with A7sII If you want good wireless mic audio with your A7SII don't use this unit, go with the UWP-D setup instead. When video is imported into Final Cut you have to use the hiss remover to get rid of it. The background hiss is at nearly -20db!! And you cannot turn the gain down in the A7sII menus when this unit is connected. Called Sony tech support and they said it could be the processing of the bluetooth signal causing the hum and there is no known fix. The positives to this system it's sooooo small.... Put quality of audio is such so poor, I am returning it and getting the UWP-D system instead.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Leaves you wanting more.. This is a great idea but executed horribly by Sony. *No manual control leaves the volume SCREAMING loud. You hear everything like the postal delivery guy delivering mail 2 blocks away. It's way too much gain with no way to control the level. Hoping for a firmware update to offer manual control and a chance to tame this beast. Better hope your talent doesn't raise their voice from a whisper because it will distort. *Hiss is definitely a problem. Disappointing for this price point. *Range is a lot less than 100' in real world situations. You better monitor this audio because I have experienced random audio dropouts even with fresh batteries. This system would be good for a situation where you want to pick up everything around the mic such as a conference, meeting, etc. I would not recommend this for just one person. It stays in my kit as a backup. A backup I hope I never have to use.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Better than nothing It's very useful for A6000 owners (since an audio jack doesn't exist), unless you want high quality audio. There is a bunch of high end hissing noise that I can't remove with EQ's because it spans so many frequencies that I end up cutting all of the high end. I haven't tried it yet with an external lav plugged into the transmitter. Maybe this will give me better results. The idea of it is great, and I really wanted to like it, but it really lacks in quality. I highly disagree with most of the other reviews.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It DOES work with RX10 OK, after couple of hours of frustration and preparing my speech for B&H's return personnel, I finally figured out how to make it work on RX10. As per Sony's website it doesn't work in 5.1ch mode, only Single or Mono. Also, the final piece to my struggle is that camera has to be switches into video mode (via dial on the left) in order for the Receiver piece to power on. Once on, you can move around into other modes. Sound quality from the remote mic is pretty good. The mic on the receiver is pretty weak so you might want to speak up. Also, I wish a faux fur socks would be provided for both pieces. Other than that - it's a great little unit and it does the job really good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Useful for a Stills Shooter 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!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from The receiver cannot be repaired I bought the product for 2 months only, and the switch is broken. (become loose, always fall to off and cannot be set to 5.1ch/mono/single) The device is brought to Sony's service center and they say the product cannot be repaired because there is no way to open the receiver component.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small and perfect This tiny bluetooth microphone when coupled with a lavlier plugged into the 3.5mm jack makes my Sony alpha6000 and awesome video rig
