Crisp sound. Superb performance. The new Directional Microphone DM-E1 can help experienced videographers and aspiring filmmakers alike achieve high-quality audio when recording video using a compatible Canon EOS digital camera. It features a number of directional controls to suit the environment and your shooting needs. Shotgun mode keeps audio focused on a subject directly in front of the camera, such as when interviewing someone for a documentary. Stereo (90°/120°) mode captures audio over a wide area for more ambient sound, ideal for nature scenes or entire orchestras. If your creativity brings you outside, the microphone also comes with a Wind Screen to help keep wind noise to a minimum. Whether you’re looking to create your masterpiece movie, record a concert or simply capture the sights and sounds of nature, the Directional Microphone DM-E1 pairs wonderfully with a Canon EOS digital camera to help you achieve phenomenal audio for your video.

External shotgun design microphone

The Directional Stereo Microphone DM-E1 features a shotgun design and delivers high quality movie sound. It is easily mounted on the hot shoe and connects into the 3.5 mm microphone socket of an extensive range of compatible EOS cameras.


Rich, realistic sound

Capture rich and realistic sound, such as the entire tonal range of a music performance - from the high frequencies of violins and flutes to the low frequencies of double basses and bass guitars - with a 50 Hz to 16 kHz pick up range. A sensitivity of -42 dB lets you record even the quietest sounds.


Versatile directional capabilities

Add an impressive soundscape to your movie thanks to three modes of directional pick up. Effortlessly switch between 90° and 120° patterns for high quality stereo sound in different sized spaces or use shotgun (monaural) mode to clearly record subjects talking direct to camera without environmental interference.


High quality soundtracks

Record clear, high quality sound without unwanted noise thanks to a shock mount that counteracts the vibrations from camera or lens operation; a bundled windshield cover, significantly reduces outdoor wind noise; and a 66 dB S/N (signal/noise) ratio that means less noise from background interference.


Easy to carry

A compact and lightweight design makes it easy to carry the microphone with you wherever you go. Combined with the camera and lens it creates one neat recording unit that enables you to shoot handheld comfortably for long periods. A lightweight button type lithium battery keeps weight to a minimum.
