The ECM-MS2 compact Electret condenser microphone is designed to work with handheld camcorders. The compact 137mm length prevents the microphone inadvertently appearing in view and makes it easier to transport.
The ECM-MS2 offers both stereo and mono operation, increasing the versatility of the microphone. It allows, for example, for one channel to record environmental sounds, while the second channel is used for a second microphone to record voice. This makes the microphone very well suited to applications such as news gathering and documentary shooting on location.
