Mates to the camera and gives adequate coverage for natural sound. Some things just aren't flashy by nature. What counts is that it fits the Sony cam mounts and works fine.
Compared to the Sony ECM-XM1 (which I have used for several years), the ECM-VG1 is marginally superior in that it has a low-cut switch to help minimize low frequency rumble. Otherwise I do not detect any significant difference when mounted on a video camera.
Good sensitivity and sound clarity for the price. I like the added plastic sleeve that helps hold it secure on my camera.
I use the ECM-VG1 shotgun mic with a Sony PXW-Z150. I nearly got another Audio Technica ATR-875R, but that would have meant getting another fuzzy and this comes with (as pictured). The surprise?
I'm really happy with this microphoneI use it with my Sony camcorder DSR PD 170p sounds very goodI'm really going to buy again from this site
The SONY ECM-VG1 is an excellent microphone. The quality is far better than some of the more expensive other brands. I used it in a wedding shoot this past weekend and it far exceeded my expectations.
Higher quality sound compact item and easy installation
This is a decent shotgun mic for a decent price. The low pass filter works well to get rid of a lot of enviornmetal noise both outside and inside. It works much better than the onboard mics.
Not in stock when I ordered the mic. Still able to receive it in less than 2 weeks.Worked well 1st time out. Looking forward to comparing to internal mic.
I am just getting started with video production and I have a budget that resembles that. For a mic that is under $300, it has done more than I could have asked for.
