Outstanding Sound Quality

The ECM-VG1 is specifically designed for professional field and studio production applications at an affordable price. It offers 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. It delivers exceptionally smooth and natural sound reproduction.

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.

  • Weight: 66 g (2.3 oz), 92 g (3.2 oz) with windscreen
  • Length: 210 mm (8 3/8 inches), 230 mm (9 1/8 inches) with windscreen
  • 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.

    Newly Developed Windscreen

    The ECM-VG1 comes with a newly developed windscreen. An internal frame fixes the windscreen rigidly, making a space between the microphone and the outside part of the windscreen. It suppresses strong wind noise and protects the ECM-VG1 from the contact noise that is typical in harsh operational environments such as outdoor applications.
