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, giving you the flexibility to adapt to your shooting requirements.

Super-directional: focused front area

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 and digital transmission

Digital signal processing

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.

Digital audio transmission

No audio degradation during transmission - When used in combination with a camera equipped with a Multi Interface (MI) Shoe that supports a digital audio interface, the ECM-B10 transmits audio directly as a digital signal, delivering high-quality sound without degradation.

Convenient, reliable operation

Cable-free connection

No cables required for connection to a wide range of Sony Cameras equipped with an MI Shoe, reducing interference, noise and complexity.

Battery-free operation

Power is also supplied via the MI Shoe in compatible cameras so you don't need to worry about microphone batteries running out of charge during a shoot.

Intuitive, easily visible rear panel

Controls for audio level, pickup pattern, filters, and other functions are within easy reach on the rear panel, visible at a glance for reassurance and quick adjustments during shooting.

Supplied wind screen

The ECM-B10 is supplied with an effective fur-type wind screen, easily detachable, that can reduce wind noise when shooting outdoors.

Designed to minimize vibration noise

The ECM-B10 has been designed to efficiently suppress noises caused by shock and vibration, while the cable-free design eliminates the possibility of noise caused by cable movement.

Dust and moisture-resistant design

Complimenting similarly dust and moisture-resistant camera bodies and lenses, the microphone is designed for worry-free outdoor shooting.
