ECM-B10 Digital Shotgun Microphone
Advanced beamforming technology
Digital signal processing using beamforming technology achieves super directivity, ideal for interviews and selfies, where the sound collection is focused on a narrow range in front of the camera.
Compact and portable
Even at only 3.122” (79.3mm) in length, the ECM-B10 offers impressive directional audio capture. Its small size gives you plenty of clearance for wide-angle lenses, viewfinder use, and great integrated audio even in gimbal and grip-mounted shots.
Your choice of three pickup patterns
Super-directional, unidirectional, omnidirectional
Advanced digital signal processing makes it possible to offer three switchable directivity patterns in one versatile microphone, allowing you to select the area for audio pickup depending on the requirements of your shoot.
Simple switching operation
Choose the most suitable pickup pattern with an easy-to-reach switch. A simple three-way switch on the rear panel of the microphone lets you quickly switch back and forth among the three pickup patterns (Super-directional, unidirectional, omnidirectional), giving you the flexibility to adapt to your shooting requirements.
Super-directional: focused front
Ideal for interviews or selfies, the super-directional pattern collects sound from a focused area in front of the microphone, effectively suppressing sounds from off-axis and behind the camera.
Unidirectional: wide frontal range
Perfect for multi-person conversations, the unidirectional pattern captures sound from a wide field in front of the microphone while minimizing pickup from behind.
Omnidirectional: sound from any direction
The omnidirectional pattern picks up audio equally from all directions, useful for recording environmental sounds or the voice of the camera operator.
High-quality recording with Digital signal processing and transmission
Sony's proprietary algorithms enable noise reduction as well as directivity. The ECM-B10 converts analogue sound to digital within the microphone body and performs digital signal processing using Sony's unique algorithms, enabling three directional pickup patterns as well as noise reduction. In-body digital conversion also helps to reduce noise inside the microphone.
Highly efficient noise filters
Noise cut filter using digital signal processing. The ECM-B10’s noise cut filter is very effective at reducing extraneous ambient noises through the use of digital signal processing algorithms, maximizing audio quality at the recording stage and reducing the need for complex post processing.
