Part of the Sony ECM series, these electret condenser shotgun microphones have a stereo MS (mid/side) pickup. They are aimed at field and studio production applications, and are compatible with a range of Sony camcorders.
This electret condenser microphone has been designed for compatibility with handheld video cameras. With both MS stereo or mono operation, the microphone is useful for capturing ambient audio or spoken word. The compact design and 137mm length enable it to be transported with ease, whilst retaining obscurity from pickup on camera lens. The microphone is terminated with twin 3-pin XLR connectors.

Sony ECM 680S is a MS (mid/side) stereo shotgun microphone with electret condenser capsules. It is popular amongst sound recordists in the field or in the studio for on-camera or boompole use. The microphone employs internal decoding to process the left and right outputs, which is terminated in 5-pin XLR connector. A switch allows the operator to select mono or stereo mode, ideal for cross use between ENG and EFP applications. When in mono mode, the pickup pattern is supercardioid. When the microphone is switched to stereo, the pickup patter is unidirectional.
