Ideal for Field Shooting with Compact Camcorders or Boom Poles

The Sony ECM-VG1 Shotgun Electret Condenser Microphone is specifically designed for professional field and studio production applications at an affordable price.

It is extremely lightweight and is supplied with an innovative windscreen that suppresses wind noise, making it a perfect choice for field sound shooting with a compact camcorder or attached to a boom pole.


  • Outstanding Sound Quality

    The ECM-VG1 delivers exceptionally smooth and natural sound reproduction. It has a flat-and-wide frequency response (40 Hz to 20 kHz), excellent sensitivity of -33 dB (0 dB=1 V/Pa), and a low inherent noise level of less than 18 dB SPL.

  • Compact and Extremely Lightweight Design with Metal Body

    Designed as an extremely lightweight shotgun microphone, the ECM-VG1 maintains good balance even when mounted on compact camcorders.

  • Built-in Low-cut Filter

    The built-in two-position (M, V) low-cut switch provides a simple method of reducing the effects of unwanted ambient noise.

  • External DC (40 to 52 V) Operation

    The ECM-VG1 provides an electronically balanced output operation on 48 V standard external power.

  • Innovative Windscreen

    The ECM-VG1 is supplied with an innovative windscreen that has an internal frame to rigidly fix the windscreen, creating a space between the microphone and the outside part of the windscreen that helps suppress strong wind noise. It also protects the ECM-VG1 from contact noise in harsh operational environments such as outdoor shooting.
