The Sony ECM-MS2 Stereo Electret Condenser Microphone is designed for mounting on professional camcorders equipped with 2 XLR inputs and phantom powering. The microphone also delivers good sound performance in field and studio-production applications. The MS microphone signal of the ECM-MS2 microphone is internally decoded, and provides L and R (stereo) outputs. The MS2 stereo microphone also supports mono operation by simply unplugging the right channel (disabling phantom power from the right channel XLR connector).

Compact Design

The compact 5.39" (137mm) length of the microphone prevents inadvertent vignetting of the microphone when it is attached to a handheld professional camcorder such as the PMW-100. Additionally, this short length is convenient when packing and transporting the microphone with a compact camcorder.

Stereo & Mono Operation

The microphone offers mono operation when stereo is not required, simply by cutting off the power supply to the right channel; for example, when a wireless microphone system is connected on 1 channel or while recording environmental sounds on the other channel. The microphone is designed for applications such as news gathering and documentary shooting on location.

Professional Quality

Professional quality is assured through the XLR3P's outputs, which enable connection to professional camcorders for 48V phantom powering. The microphone's metal body also enhances audio performance by blocking vibration, resonance, and RF noises.

Handy Accessory

The supplied furry windscreen is used to suppress the strong wind present in typical harsh-climate operating conditions. A cable tie is also supplied to fasten the unplugged microphone cable during mono operation.

Compatibility

This microphone is compatible with PMW-100, NEX-FS700, and HXR-NX30 Camcorders
