question

Is this mic compatible with a Sony HDR SR11 camcorder? Looking for best (and cost effective) mic. Have read that some mics have audio issues. Any audio issues with this mic? Thanks!
Asked by: Anonymous
The Sony ECM-44BC features a 4 pin connector designed for connection to specific Sony wireless mic transmitters only. This will not be compatible with a camcorder such as the HDR-SR11 which requires a mic with a 1/8 connector.

question

Is the Sony SMC9-4P Connector the same, exactly, as the female 4-pin HIROSE connector?So can I use this Sony ECM44BC lavalier with an Audio Technica ATW-210a wireless transmitter ?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes it is a 4 pin connector called an SMC9-4P for use with the WRT-822A and WRT-860A beltpack transmitters. It should work with your AT beltpack. The most commonly recommended mic is the Sony ECM-166BC which has the same connector.

question

Will this microphone work with a gopro and an adapter?
Asked by: Anonymous
The Sony ECM-44BMP features a locking connector specifically designed for use with Sony wireless transmitters. Currently no adapter available which allows for connection to a camera or recorder. Sony does however offer the ECM-44B which is a battery powered unit that can be adapted to use with Go Pro cameras when using the proper adapters.
