Sony ECM-674/9X overview

  • 1Description

The Sony ECM-674/9X Shotgun Microphone provides professional level signal reproduction while remaining cost effective. The ECM-674/9X's compact size, audio character and sensitivity result in the level of performance suitable for use with professional and semi-professional video cameras.

The ECM-674/9X features a supercardioid polar pattern for excellent directivity and minimal noise at the off-axis sections of the capsule. The result is a detailed, audible signal while used in noisy environments. The microphone provides a wide, flat frequency response which results in smooth, accurate signal reproduction with crisp detail and no added coloration. The ECM-674/9X is powered with an internal AA-size battery or external 48-volt phantom power.

The ECM-674/9X's size and sound quality make it an excellent choice for event video shoots, film, documentary shooting, court room depositions, etc.

Battery or Phantom Power
The ECM-674/9X is capable of powering via AA size internal battery or external 48 Volt phantom power.
Supercardioid Polar Pattern
The supercardioid polar pattern is effective in minimizing noise and ambient audio at the off-axis sections of the microphone capsule.
Low Frequency Roll-Off Switch
The 2-position low frequency roll-off switch minimizes low frequency rumble and noise due to wind, proximity effect, ambiance, etc.
Compact Design
The ECM-674/9X features a low-profile and light weight construction. The compact design is suitable for mounting on smaller cameras without obstructing the view.

    Sony ECM-674/9X reviews

    ECM-674/9X Electret Condenser Shotgun Microphone is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top Performing Shotgun Microphone I purchased this unit and a DLX Universal Shock Mount with camerca shoe for use on my Panasonic AG-HMC 70 HD camcorder. I purchased this unit after purchasing a Sennheiser MK 400 stereo shotgun mike. The Sennheiser could not stand up to the wear and tear of recording among a group of news who were all elbows who managed to rip the microphone from its shock mount twice. The ECM-674 produces way better sound. However, I am forced on many occasions to use the camera's built in attenuators because the unit is picking up way too much sound. However, this is a great advantage when the source is soft with low sound levels. Works well with either a AA battery or with phatom power provided by camera. You definitely need the shock mount with camera shoe. In the wind, the microphone picks up wind noise. The wind screen helps, but it is not perfect.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have. Using the standard in camera microphonone on a sony gives you great sound coverage, but if you are shooting in a crowded room, reception hall or are far from the subject the ECM-674/9X is a must have. I used it to shoot a wedding this weekend and don't know how I ever did without it. Of course you'd still need the wireless for other parts of the event, but do yourself, and your costumers a favor, and get one of these. If you are shooting outside, be sure to use the wind buffer even if is not windy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from outstanding mic I used this mic on a Sony ex1r, shooting on the roof of an apartment in NY during a very windy day. The mic did an amazing job. When I watched the footage I was sure the actors were wearing wireless mics. The mic is just superb.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Potent I use this microphone with the UTX P1 transmitter (wireless)on a Sony Z5 video camera.No phantom power needed. Excellent for speeches recording, school plays etc. No hissing noise even when you boost the signal. Perform excellent on-camera as well

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Reliable and long lasting This microphone is leagues above the one that came with my Sony V1U and always provides very high quality audio. The audio is so rich that it's easy to separate out background sound with noise reduction filters and still retain a high quality. I use this mic on a boom, mounted to the camera, even in the office for voice recording. It is fantastic.
