Sony Nex 5N ECM-SST1 Stereo Mic Test.
Here is a little quick audio test we did with Hazel Estrella, one of our models for our Sony Nex 5N test shoot. The built in camera mic is really bad. The Sony ECM-SST1 seemed like it might be a little better. There are no other options for on camera sound. Stupid Sony Mount. It’s not the greatest mic but will work in a pinch. I picked mine up at B&H for around $90, much less than the $129 from the Sony Store. Hazel Estrella is an up and coming pop star. She has really great energy. I guess I would recommend getting this mic. It’s better than nothing. However this camera will work best with a separate sound system like the Zoom H4n.
