The ECM-680S is an MS stereo shotgun, electret condenser microphone, perfect for a broad range of field production and broadcast studio applications. It offers excellent sensitivity, low inherent noise, and a flat-and-wide frequency response. The most distinguished feature of the ECM-680S is its switchable operation between a highly directional monaural mode and stereo mode. Monaural mode provides highly directional sound pickup, while stereo mode delivers natural and spatial sound. The MS microphone signal of the ECM-680S is internally decoded and it provides L and R (stereo) outputs. The ECM-680S is supplied with a XLR-5-pin to XLR-5 pin cable for use with HDW-F900R/ HDW-750 HDCAM or PDW-F330/PDW-F350 XDCAM HD camcorders. The optional K-1504 cable should be used to mount/ connect the ECM-680S stereo shotgun onto camcorders with two 3-pin XLR inputs.
