Sony ECM-W1M Wireless Microphone for Cameras with Multi-Interface Shoe
Key Features
  • Bluetooth Wireless Microphone System
  • Wireless Range of up to 100'
  • Two-Way Communication Possible

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.

I see it says you can record with the cameras internal mic still with this attached. I assume you can still attach a on camera mic and not the internal? Can you use this as a channel source on A6400 or A7Rii through the hot shoe and still add an on camera mic like the Rode Mic through the cameras microphone port?
Asked by: Malcolm
If you are using the ECM-W1M system, the receiver is connected to the camera through its multi-interface shoe. You cannot attach an on-camera mic when using the wireless receiver. However, since the transmitter can be used to connect an external mic through its 3.5mm input, you can use an external mic off-camera, including any of Rode's VideoMic series. The external mic connects to the transmitter's 3.5mm input and the signal will then be sent wirelessly to the receiver and recorded by the camera. The external mic can be attached to a boompole, stand, or pistol grip while it's connected to the transmitter and will function as a wireless mic.

For additional versatility, I wonder if the Bluetooth transmitter could go directly to a Smartphone without using the MI receiver?
Asked by: Randy
Don’t believe so because the hot shoe connection is what feeds the audio into the camera. Unaware of a way to connect the transmitter to a phone’s Bluetooth connection.
