question

whats the difference between the Sony ECM 678, now discontinued mic and the new Sony ECM 678/9x shotgun mic?
Asked by: Richard E.
The available documentation from Sony shows identical specifications for both mics. The only mentioned difference would be in the included accessories, with the ECM-678/9x a short XLR cable is provided for connection to the camera.
