Sony today announced a new microphone in its ECM range, these are microphones that are aimed at content creators and freelance videographers that want the best sound quality possible, and some manual control over sound capture, but with a minimal and compact setup.

The new ECM-M1 microphone offers a fascinating new way to capture very directional audio, all in one device, which Sony has credited to the latest developments it has made in its beamforming microphone technology. In a recent press event for the launch, Sony described it as ‘the most versatile sound capture tool to date’.
