Sufficient

NEX5NUser, ABT Electronics
8 January 2012
  • Summary: Had this mic for a few hours before returning for refund. Immediately started comparing microphone's performance to that of the built-in mic on my NEX-5N. WITHOUT this mic, I picked up sound from all directions and virtually no room tone. WITH this mic, I only picked up sound in front of the camera, but the room tone sounded like a jet engine, or at least, a nearby waterfall.

Good Addition

  • Summary: Sound is very good as long as you are not planning to zoom while recording or if you are using a tripod. The Microphone picks up clunking from my hands on the camera and when I try to use the zoom.

Small size, great performance.

  • Summary: I dont regret purchasing this item, and although i may buy a higher quality mic sometime in the future this does a very good job at a great price and I highly recommend it.
  • Pros: I was actually looking for a smaller mic to use with my Kodak zi8, but this still works excellent with that device. I have also used it with my panasonic gs100k and a friends Canon 5D mkII.
  • Cons: The battery may be hard to find when it runs out, but it seems to last a long time. The battery cover looks like it may not be on very securely, but i just put a small piece of gaff tape on it and it holds perfectly. Maybe it is me just being paranoid, but I seem to have a tendency to loose things.

Helpful Mic.

Culchie, ABT Electronics
6 October 2010
  • Summary: I bought and tested the ECM-SST 1 compact mic on a NEX-5 during lunch hour, shooting into a continuous passing crowd on the Ave. of the Americas, in Manhattan. There was also a crosswind present. I shot three test clips: 1-with the Mic set on wide(120degrees), 2- with the Mic set on narrow (90degrees) & 3- using the camera's built-in Mic alone. The Mic itself wasn't easy to attach to the camera.

  • Summary: In use with a Sony NEX5 it works wonders. Coupled with the directional feature and the reduce background noise feature in the iMovie software it offers an above average quality.
