Sony Announces ECM-W2BT Wireless Microphone and ECM-LV1 Compact Stereo Lavalier Microphone
The new ECM-W2BT wireless microphone and EC-LV1 compact stereo lavalier microphone from Sony are perfect for vloggers and content creators. Sony has really been doing well with gear for vloggers, including the ZV-1 camera, and recently released a special grip called the GP-VPT2BT, which wirelessly controls Sony cameras.
Of course vloggers and content creators need to record crisp and clear sound, and that's where the ECM-W2BT and EC-LV1 microphones come in. The ECM-W2BT fits nicely on a Sony camera's multi-interface shoe, doesn't need cables, the mic and transmitter weigh less than an ounce each (about 26-28 grams), and has a built-in battery that lasts up to 9 hours.
Both units rely on Bluetooth to transmit audio, up to 600 feet (or 180 meters), with low latency. As a complement to the ECM-W2BT, there is the EC-LV1 lavalier microphone, with two omnidirectional mics built in.
The ECM-W2BT costs $229.99 USD, while the ECM-LV1 lav costs just $29.99 USD. Learn more at Sony's site.
