Sony’s new ECM 674 shotgun mic

Sony Electronics has introduced the ECM-674 shotgun condenser microphone.

The microphone can be used with several Sony professional camcorders, including models in the HDV, DVCAM and XDCAM product lines. Its compact, lightweight design (10.5in, 6.5oz) provides good balance when mounted.

The ECM-674 offers a two-way powering option (internal AA-size battery or external DC 40 to 52V), and features sensitivity of 36dB (0dB = 1V/Pa.), a low inherent-noise level of less than 17dB SPL, and flat-and-wide frequency responses (40Hz to 20kHz). A built-in low-cut filter provides users with a method of reducing the effects of undesired ambient noise. A built-in battery liquid leakage protection circuit continually monitors battery output voltage and automatically shuts off power when voltage drop-offs presents the risk of a leak. Supplied accessories include a windscreen, microphone holder, spacer and cable.
