The Sony® ECM-CG50 Shotgun Microphone is recommended. Optional microphones with a 3.5mm diameter mini-plug can also be used.
- Sound is only recorded on the left side when using a monaural microphone
- If your camera is equipped with a Multi interface shoe, an external XLR microphone can be used by attaching a XLR-K1M XLR adaptor which is sold separately. In this case, the audio can be recorded in both L/R channels when even if a monaural microphone is used
- Some microphones may not be compatible or have poor sensitivity. A test recording is recommended before actual use to ensure the sound will record properly.
