Sony ECMCG60 overview

  • 1Description

The ECM-CG60 from Sony is a pro-quality supercardioid, electret- condenser, monaural shotgun microphone that can be used to capture audio in several environments for devices such as video cameras, DSLRs, camcorders, and more.

Some of the features for the ECM-CG60 are that it is designed to improve sound collection within areas of narrow range to pick up targeted sound. For instance, there is a low cut filter that reduces unwanted noise. Also, there is a switch that can select between Norm for picking up natural sound within low-to-high tone ranges, or Low Cut for effectively cutting low tone to reduce wind noise and noise from vibration and air conditioners.

In addition, the ECM-CG60 is powered by an AA alkaline battery, or it can be powered by the mic input jack (plug-in power) on your camera. This mic is built for pro-quality cameras and camcorders equipped with a 3.5mm mic input jack and easily attaches to your industry standard cold shoe.

Pro-Quality Performance
Enjoy natural, smooth sound quality with an extended frequency response, low noise, and wide dynamic range. The ECM-CG60 is convenient for shooting movies with compact cameras, camcorders, and interchangeable-lens cameras without entering the frame
Wide Compatibility
Built for cameras and camcorders that use a 3.5mm mini audio input jack, this microphone is also supplied with a shoe adaptor that attaches directly to your camera or camcorder's standard accessory shoe
More Audio and Less Noise
Enjoy far better results than your camera or camcorder's built-in microphone. The low cut mode reduces unwanted low frequencies, while the mounting isolator cuts distracting mechanical noise from the camera and lens. There's also a supplied windshield that reduces noise in gusty conditions outdoors
Normal or Low Cut
The ECM-CG60 features a convenient switch which can select between NORM for picking up natural sound within low-to-high tone range or LOW CUT for effectively cutting low tones to reduce wind noise and noise from vibration and air conditioners

    Sony ECMCG60 reviews

    ECM-CG60 Shotgun Microphone is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for it's price I use it to record people I interview. The microphone is good, but it records a lot of noise not just the person speaking, even if you turn it to low cut. I still have to do more test with it, but so far it's just ok. If you are looking for a GOOD boom, this is not it. I you just want to have better sound on your family videos, this will work.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just Ok I have to buy an adapter to mount it on my Sony AX100 camcorder, and the sound doesn't make much difference with the build-in mic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for my camera I tried all microphone positions. I am using Sony RX10 M2. Normal position a little noisy, but when the wind shield is used quite successfully Body structure have a high quality. I fix one or two incorrect information in the meantime !! First, using AAA battery. secondly, total weight 218 g, including battery microphone and stand..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good sound, build quality, value Good build quality, good sound quality. Provides much better quality sound than using just the built in microphones on a DSLR or prosumer camcorder - BUT - it is a mono microphone, you may miss the spatial presentation of stereo. Excellent for what it is, good value for the money. Expect it to take hard use for years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loud And Proud I use the mic with my Sony FDR-AX33 camcorder. I shoot motocross and other action sports and it works great. Im shooting around loud motorcycles all the time but the mic never fails to pick up the sounds I need. Very pleased.
