Canon DM-E1D Overview

Dedicated to select Canon cameras featuring a Multi-Function Shoe, the DM-E1D Stereo Microphone is a compact external microphone offering a range of directional control for improved audio quality when recording videos. This dedicated mic utilizes the Multi-Function Shoe to provide power and a digital connection, meaning no batteries or cabled connections are required for use. The streamlined design carries over to settings control, too, with the mic solely featuring a Menu button to bring up a menu on the connected camera for making adjustments and settings changes.

Compatible with Canon cameras featuring a Multi-Function Shoe, this mic digitally connects to the camera with this connection and also receives power from it; no batteries or connection cables required.
Digital connection greatly reduces buzzing or unwanted noise in audio recordings.
Three separate pickup settings are available to suit a variety of shooting needs:
  • Shotgun is a focused recording mode that picks up a narrow band of sound in front of the camera, making it suitable for dialogues, single musical instruments, or other specific subjects.
  • 90° stereo recording mode is suitable for a single subject and adds some audio context to the sides to suit recording small groups of people.
  • 120° stereo recording mode offers a wider angle of sound that is ideal for recording larger groups in more expansive areas, such as a band on stage or an outdoor party.
Menu button works in conjunction with the camera's own menu system, and microphone settings adjustments can be made via the camera interface.
The included windscreen helps to reduce peripheral sound from wind or other ambient sounds for cleaner, more focused playback.

Will this work with the Canon R5 and R6 ?
Asked by: Joel
The Canon DM-E1D Stereo Microphone is a brand new mic that is not yet in stock and the information available at this time is limited. The DM-E1D uses a cable-free and battery-free connection to attach to select Canon cameras equipped with Canon's new Multi-Function Shoe, which is a standard feature on the new EOS R3 Mirrorless Digital Camera. The R5 and R6 models have a conventional hot shoe, not the Multi-Function Shoe. The wired Canon DM-E1 Directional Microphone (B&H # CADME1) is compatible with the R5 and R6 cameras.

How would this be on a Canon XF605? The hot shoe is at the rear (about 1' from a shotgun).
Asked by: Joshua
The Canon DM-E1D Stereo Microphone is not compatible for use with the Canon XF605 UHD 4K HDR Pro Camcorder because the DM-E1D is intended for use with Canon mirrorless and DSLR cameras that have the Multi-Function Shoe for a cable-free and battery-free connection. The XFF605 has a standard shoe. It can be used with the Canon DM-E1 Directional Microphone (B&H # CADME1), which is a similar microphone that connects with a cable and uses a battery for power.
