Eight audio recording modes in one versatile microphone

Beamforming technology combines four discrete microphone capsules with precision algorithms, to maximize pickup sensitivity in the desired directions while reducing it in others. The result is an incredibly compact and versatile microphone with high performance even in challenging audio environments.

Simple controls for easy setting and operation

Simply turning a dial on the rear of the microphone allows easy, intuitive selection of pickup patterns, and a lock button in the center prevents accidental changes. Other controls are also straightforward and easy to understand and operate.

Outstanding audio quality

The latest digital audio technology delivers stunning audio performance.

Compact size and light weight for versatility and portability

The impressively compact size and light weight of the microphone make it incredibly versatile for a range of shooting, and a trusty addition to any gear bag.

Compact size and light weight

The impressively compact size (length 2-1/2 in. - 64.4 mm3) and light weight (2.3 oz. - 65 g3) give a high degree of shooting freedom and mobility. The microphone does not intrude when shooting selfies, or when using even a very wide-angle lens. The compact size also makes it easy to use with gimbals and grips.

Easy operability and connectivity

The ECM-M1 provides controls that are easy to operate, with simple connection to compatible cameras.

Supplied wind screen

The ECM-M1 is supplied with an effective fur-type wind screen, easily detachable, that can reduce wind noise when shooting outdoors.

Omnidirectional backup safety recording on channels 3 and 4

On compatible cameras, while channels 1 and 2 record with the selected directivity pattern, channels 3 and 4 can make omnidirectional backup safety recordings at different sensitivities (–20 dB4 for channel 4).

Simple Switch Operation

Comprehensive, clearly marked controls make it easy to adjust and confirm all microphone settings at a glance for worry-free operation.

Easy Camera Connection

Multi-Interface (MI) Shoe support allows battery and cable free shooting, allowing recording to start as soon as the microphone is attached to the MI Shoe on compatible cameras.

Dust and Moisture Resistant Design

The ECM-M1 features a dust and moisture resistant design that allows reliable operation in challenging outdoor conditions.

Effective mechanical noise suppression

The design dampens shock and vibration, for effective minimization of low-frequency vibration noise. The cable-less design also eliminates mechanical transmission of vibration noise to the microphone via cables.
