Not bad

  • Excerpt: This is one of the few external options for the NEX 5t. As the other reviews mention, this is ok. Installing the mic is a pain and while the sound is better than onboard mic, not sure if it is worth the $$. anyways I am a big fan of the NEX 5T series.

Poor build quality, does not attach firmly to camera, below average quality

  • Summary: Fell in love with the amazing quality of the video recorded by the Sony Nex 5n. As I shoot a lot of live music, I looked for a good cheap microphone too improve the audio quality. The internal mics, besides sounding tinny also capture the loud lens' motors when focusing and during stabilization.

Good Microphone!

  • Excerpt: I use the ECM-SST1 to conduct interviews using my Sony NEX-5R. So far i've really liked it with a few exceptions. The sound is clearly improved from using the internal microphone in the camera and it allows for directional recording which is great.

Essential microphone

  • Pros: Clear Sound, Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: Limited Functions

Disappointed... : S

  • Excerpt: I should have read the review by others who mentioned about the sounds of lens trying to focus... I am using NEX lenses on it and I still could hear noises... NEX5n already has a great sound IMO, but this mic improve the sound slightly. Now I have to do MF to be able to use this...
