Clear, wide pickup and stereo sound

Thanks to the omnidirectional configuration of the unit's mic capsules, the microphone picks up sound from all directions, so you don't have to worry about which way it's pointed. It's designed to be placed close to the speaker's mouth, providing a clear, high-quality stereo audio recording.

The ECM-LV1 can be used with a number of electronic devices other than cameras and camcorders. PCs that are fitted with a 0.14 " stereo mini-jack can be easily connected, as can digital voice recorders.
