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
