Dedicated to select Canon cameras featuring a Multi-Function Shoe, the DM-E1D Stereo Microphone is a compact external microphone offering a range of directional control for improved audio quality when recording videos. This dedicated mic utilizes the Multi-Function Shoe to provide power and a digital connection, meaning no batteries or cabled connections are required for use. The streamlined design carries over to settings control, too, with the mic solely featuring a Menu button to bring up a menu on the connected camera for making adjustments and settings changes.
Compatible with Canon cameras featuring a Multi-Function Shoe, this mic digitally connects to the camera with this connection and also receives power from it; no batteries or connection cables required.
Digital connection greatly reduces buzzing or unwanted noise in audio recordings.
Three separate pickup settings are available to suit a variety of shooting needs:
Shotgun is a focused recording mode that picks up a narrow band of sound in front of the camera, making it suitable for dialogues, single musical instruments, or other specific subjects.
90° stereo recording mode is suitable for a single subject and adds some audio context to the sides to suit recording small groups of people.
120° stereo recording mode offers a wider angle of sound that is ideal for recording larger groups in more expansive areas, such as a band on stage or an outdoor party.
Menu button works in conjunction with the camera's own menu system, and microphone settings adjustments can be made via the camera interface.
The included windscreen helps to reduce peripheral sound from wind or other ambient sounds for cleaner, more focused playback.
