|Electret Condenser Shotgun Microphone>>
Professional Mic for the HVR-Z1E
New shotgun mic is an unbeatable partner for HDV, XDCAM & DVCAM Camcorders
'Simply the best Sony Microphones - his performance was just as good if not better than the other manufacturers of microphones that cost twice as much. "In the January 2005 sold in Europe, ECM-678 is a of the best microphones from Sony. Both in studio and on location shots, this short-electret condenser microphone with shotgun-clear sound quality. The ECM-678 was developed specifically for the new HDV Camcorder HVR-Z1E, but is also ideal for use with DVCAM and XDCAM camcorders in applications for high-quality audio recording is crucial.
Due to the use of the latest technologies, the performance of the ECM-678 comparable if not even higher, with the other twice as expensive microphones provider: in addition to a five times higher sensitivity (-28 dB) than the ECM-670 shotgun microphone, this one extremely low noise of less than 16 dB SPL. Thanks to its directional frequency response of the microphone is ideal for voice recording in difficult environments. In addition, the integrated low-pass filter helps reduce unwanted noise and wind noise as they often occur in outdoor scenes.
Which is designed for the most demanding conditions microphone ECM-678 is delivered with a windscreen, microphone holder, spacer, carrying case and XLR connectors.
The ECM-678 is equipped with a newly developed microphone capsule, which provides an excellent sensitivity of -28 dB and extremely low noise of less than 16 dB SPL. Thus even the smallest sounds are recorded over long distances clearly.
Flat, wide frequency response
With its flat, wide frequency response (40 Hz to 20 kHz), the ECM-678 an exceptionally natural, uninterrupted sound.
These Compact Design The ECM-678 is a compact, powerful shotgun microphone that low, despite its length of 250 mm exceptional audio performance.
Integrated low-pass filter
Because of the integrated low-pass filter, two-position (M, V) allows the user to unwanted ambient noise without further reduced to a minimum.
High durability and reliability
The shock-proof design of the ECM-678 provides superior durability and reliability. So, this microphone is also suitable for even the most difficult working conditions and demanding recordings.
