Directional Stereo Microphone DM-E1

The DM-E1 is a compact stereo directional microphone. Designed to complement the movie quality of the EOS range, the DM-E1 is a versatile, high-quality microphone that can be used to capture a range of subjects.

Featuring a classic shotgun design, the DM-E1 provides the ability to adjust the microphone to capture in three different directional patterns. The monaural shotgun mode is best suited for capturing a sound source directly in front of the camera, such as a presenter or reporter, providing some isolation from other sounds from within their environment. Switching to the 90 and 120 degree modes provides stereo sound for sources that are spread over wider areas, such as an orchestra in a concert hall.

The in-built shock mount ensures noise from camera operations and lens zoom are effectively reduced, whilst wind noise is avoided thanks to the windshield. With a 50Hz to 16kHz sound frequency range pick-up, the microphone can capture a wide tonal range, while the 66dB S/N ratio and -42db sensitivity means users have a sensitive microphone with minimal distortion.

The DM-E1 is one of the smallest and lightest microphones of its kind which makes it perfect for shooting on the move. EOS cameras featuring a 3.5mm stereo input socket are compatible, excluding EOS-1D Mark IV and EOS  550D which are not recommended as they do not feature manual volume control.

The Directional Microphone DM-E1 is available from June 2016 with an RRP of £274.99 / €369.99.
