Good quality video is not just reliant on visual aspects but also audio. As we touched on earlier, the range of vlogging-friendly cameras from Sony can be combined with external microphones easily, which makes it easy to attain audio that matches your video quality. Sony recently released the ECM-B1M microphone, a shotgun-style Microphone that can be attached to the accessory shoe of your Sony A7S Mark 3 camera to easily enhance its audio recording quality. The ECM-B1M is lightweight and compact, so great for all occasions, while its directional nature, mechanical noise-suppression, and low-cut filter allow you to record only voices or similar sound while cutting down on distracting background noise.
Another handy accessory for successful vlogging with Sony is the XLR adaptor and shotgun microphone kit, which not only features a microphone for instantly improving your sound quality but also opens the door to you using limitless pro-level microphones further on down the track.
