Sony ECM-B1M Camera-Mount Digital Shotgun Microphone for Sony Cameras
Key Features
  • Designed for Sony a7R IV
  • Mounts via Sony Multi Interface Shoe
  • 3 x Selectable Directivity Patterns
  • Selectable Digital/Analog Output
The Sony ECM-B1M is an ultra-compact camera-mount digital shotgun microphone designed for mobile video creators working with Sony cameras equipped with the Multi Interface Shoe. Released alongside the a7R IV, which benefits from its built-in Digital Audio Interface, the ECM-B1M is able to produce its best quality by delivering a digital audio stream directly to the camera through the Multi Interface Shoe. Other Sony cameras with the standard Multi Interface Shoe can still make use of the microphone as there is a selectable digital/analog output.

The included deadcat muff is only good enough for ...

The included deadcat muff is only good enough for mild side and back wind. It's inadequate for stronger wind. Does anyone have a recommendation for a more robust wind noise cancellation solution for this for 20-30mph wind hitting the back of it? (Shooting while riding a Segway). Thank you for your help!!!
Asked by: ALLEN ALI
You can try layering a foam windscreen underneath the deadcat and that should provide much better protection from wind noise.

Since you can only use it for Analog Audio in every other model - whats the difference? Will the Audio Quality still be as good as the digital audio?
Asked by: Robbie
thank you for your question. This microphone has digital processing to change the way the microphone picks up audio and connects with a Multi Interface shoe. You will have great sound quality without the hassle of cables to extra components.

Is this mic compatible with the FX30? The FX30 ...

Is this mic compatible with the FX30? The FX30 page on Sony's website states it has a Multi Interface Shoe yet I saw an answer stating this mic was not compatible with the FX3 which I thought had the same style of Hot shoe. If not compatible are there any Sony shotgun mics that are compatible?
Asked by: Anthony
I reached out to Sony and confirmed that the Sony ECM-B1M Camera-Mount Digital Shotgun Microphone is compatible with both the FX30 and the FX3 Cinema Cameras. The ECM-B1M can be connected directly to the Multi Interface Shoe on both cameras.

Is there a way to power this other than through the Sony multi interface shoe for use off camera? If not, could an Sony cable such as B&H # VEOCSSM3 be used to place it off camera and still have it work? TIA
Asked by: Jon
Not really the mic was designed for the Sony Multi Interface Shoe. One of the design concepts was to have the mic cable free. So no noise can be transmitted through the cable to the mic.
