Sony is there Announcement A new compact digital shotgun microphone, the ECM-B10.

This compact microphone is only 7.9cm (3.1 ”) tall, 8.3cm (3.3”) tall and weighs just 74g (2.6oz). It has three built-in pickup patterns – ubiquitous, cardioid and hypercardioid – which can be changed while flying with a three-way switch. Other back buttons include an analog / digital switch, a noise filter switch (off, low cut and noise cut), an attenuation switch (0dB, 10dB and 20dB), an audio level wheel and a toggle to switch between auto and manual.

When using ECM-B10 with a Sony Mirrorless camera with a MI shoe, the microphone will digitally convert the analog signal to the microphone before sending it to the camera via the MI shoe. Sony says it uses technology ‘proprietary algorithms [to] Enables instruction as well as noise reduction. ‘ The MI interface also provides all the power the microphone needs, which means there’s no need to charge and save separate batteries when using compatible cameras.
The Sony ECM-B10 is available for pre-order starting today at $ 250. The first units are expected to be shipped in early August 2022 In addition to the microphone, the kit includes a soft pouch, a windscreen and an MI shoe cover.
