For Sony cameras with multi-interface (MI) shoe
Capture It All, Crystal Clear. The Sony ECM-B10 microphone is perfectly curated for content-creators, podcasters, and videographers who are looking for little outside sounds creeping through, and offers three types of pickup patterns in a single mic. The superdirectional pattern is used to tightly focus audio capture on a single subject directly in front of the camera, the unidirectional pattern for a wider shot or if you have two subjects on camera, and the omnidirectional setting captures audio in a 360° field around the mic to pick up environmental sounds and voices from behind the camera. This mic converts analog sound to digital within the microphone body and performs digital signal processing using Sony’s unique algorithms—enabling the three directional pickup patterns as well as noise reduction. Direct digital audio transmission to the camera eliminates signal degradation, supplying pristine in-camera audio recordings without the noise and hiss common to analog preamps found in many cameras. A simple digital/analog switch also provides compatibility with a wide range of cameras using an analog interface. The ECM-B10 is compatible with the Sony a7R IV, a7C, ZVE10 cameras and other Sony products with MI shoe that support digital audio.
Noise Filters & Pad Control. Located on the rear panel, your settings are easily & swiftly adjustable. The ECM-B10’s noise-cut filter and low-cut filter are very effective at reducing extraneous ambient noises and cutting out low-frequency noise through the use of digital signal processing algorithms, maximizing audio quality at the recording stage and reducing the need for complex post-processing. Auto level control and a variable pad (-20, -10, 0 dB) makes it easy to set optimum recording levels.
Small but Mighty. Coming in at a whopping 3.1 inches, this battery-free mic is ready to go whenever & wherever you are. Although a compact microphone, the power lies within the impressive directional audio capture. Its small size gives you plenty of clearance for wide-angle lenses, viewfinder use, and gimbals. No cables are required for connection to a wide range of Sony cameras equipped with an MI shoe. The absence of connecting cables means that no noise can be transmitted to the microphone mechanically via cables and connectors.
Resistant. The ECM-B10 features an advanced shock- and vibration-suppressing design to effectively minimize low-frequency or handling noise, which can degrade audio quality. Complementing similarly dust and moisture-resistant cameras, the ECM-B10 is designed for worry-free outdoor shooting. The supplied furry windshield is easily detachable and effective with reducing wind noise for capturing crisp audio on outdoor shoots.
No. The Sony ECM-B10 is completely wireless with no outputs. The mic is completely powered by the camera.
