Product Details

Sony Camcorder Shotgun Microphone - ECM-CG60


  • Pro-quality performance
    Enjoy rich, smooth sound quality with an extended frequency response, low noise and wide dynamic range. More compact and approx. 15% shorter than the previous model (ECM-CG50), the ECM-CG60 is convenient for shooting movies with compact cameras, camcorders and interchangeable-lens cameras without entering the frame
  • Sound that pinpoints your subject
    Your camera or camcorder's built-in microphone can struggle to pick up clear dialogue and foreground sounds. This high quality 'shotgun' type mic focuses on sounds in a narrrow (supercardioid directivity) pattern in front of the camera to isolates direct sound sources
  • Wide compatibility and easy mounting
    Built for cameras and camcorders that use a 3.5mm mini audio output jack, this microphone is also supplied with a shoe adaptor that attaches directly to your camera or camcorder's standard accessory shoe
  • More audio, less noise
    Enjoy far better results than your camera or camcorder's built-in microphone. The low cut mode reduces unwanted low frequencies, while the mounting isolator cuts distracting mechanical noise from the camera and lens. There's also a supplied windshield that reduces noise in gusty conditions outdoors
  • Normal or Low Cut
    The ECM-CG60 features a convenient switch which can select between NORM: for picking up natural sound within low-to-high tone range or LOW CUT: for effectively cutting low tones to reduce wind noise and noise from vibration and air conditioners
  • Power Options
    The ECM-CG60 has two options for power; AA alkaline battery or the camera's battery via MIC input jack. There's a convenient battery check lamp that momentarily lights up when sliding the switch from OFF to ON to indicate that there is remaining battery power when powered by an alkaline battery. Note: The lamp does not light up when the microphone is powered by the camera
