Sony ECM-GZ1M Overview
The Sony ECM-GZ1M Zoom Microphone is a monaural on-camera microphone that features a hot shoe interface specifically for Sony cameras and camcorders that have the propriety Multi-Interface Shoe. The microphone is designed to help isolate the sound you want originating from the subject while rejecting unwanted ambient noise. It offers two setting to choose from: a "Gun" Mode which locks the microphone in a fixed pick-up pattern, and a "Zoom" Mode which dynamically adjusts the pick-up pattern in relation how much you zoom in, making the microphone pick-up angle narrower as you zoom closer - Zoom Mode requires a camera or camcorder with a zoom lens.
- Monaural, electret condenser microphone that powers directly from the camera or camcorder's hot shoe
- Removable windscreen helps reduce wind noise for shooting outdoors
For all Sony camcorder models that feature the Multi-Interface Shoe. Note: This is not compatible with earlier camcorders that use Active Interface Shoe (AIS).
