Sony Vertical Grip for Sony Alpha 7R IV with ECM-B1M Shotgun Mic Bundle

Sony ECM-B1M Digital Shotgun Microphone

Eight high-performance mic capsules and advanced digital signal processing provide three selectable directivity patterns in one compact microphone of approximately 99.3mm (4 inches) in length with super-directional pick up; when connected to the Sony Alpha 7R IV (a7R IV) via its Multi Interface Shoe with digital audio interface support, audio is directly transferred to the camera in digital form so that the highest possible quality is achieved without noise or degradation.

Three Directivity Modes

Advanced digital signal processing makes it possible to offer three switchable directivity patterns in one versatile microphone: super-directional, unidirectional, and omnidirectional.

Super-Directivity in a Compact Microphone

Eight high-performance microphone units work with a newly developed beamforming algorithm to provide extremely sharp directivity that effectively rejects off-axis sound. All of this is achieved in a remarkably compact microphone that is only 99.3mm in length.

Great Sound with Low Noise

When connected via the Multi Interface Shoe of a compatible camera that features a built-in digital audio interface, the audio signal is directly transferred to the camera in digital form so that no degradation can occur. A simple switch also provides compatibility with a wide range of cameras using an analogue interface.

Mechanical Noise Suppression

An advanced shock and vibration suppressing design effectively minimises low-frequency, or handling, noise that can degrade audio quality. The absence of connecting cables also means that no noise can be transmitted to the microphone mechanically via cables and connectors.

Effective Filter for Clear Sound

A low-cut filter that cuts out subsonic noise is implemented through digital signal processing, maximising audio quality at the recording stage and thereby reducing the need for complex post processing.

Cable-Free Connection

Simply clip the microphone into the Multi Interface Shoe on a compatible camera for direct power and audio connections without the need for extra cables or batteries. Sony’s Multi Interface Shoe offers intelligent connectivity and control for a variety of accessories, providing maximum flexibility and mobility for α system shooting.

Wind Screen Supplied

The ECM-B1M is supplied with a fur type wind screen that can reduce wind noise when shooting outdoors.

Essential Controls

Record level control, analogue output for compatibility with a wide range of cameras, and an attenuator that makes it easy to set optimum signal levels all add to this microphone’s versatility. This level of control can contribute to smooth, stress-free post production.

Sony 64GB UHS-II Tough G-Series SD Card

Designed for professionals who shoot in extreme conditions and require the highest performance. With bend-resistance that's 18-times greater than the SD standard, the highest level waterproof and dustproof grades (IP68), the fastest read speed at up to 300 MB/s and fastest write speed at up to 299 MB/s, the SF-G series TOUGH specification protects professional work.

Fast File Transfer

Take burst-shooting and high-resolution video recording to the next level with ultra-fast write speeds up to 299 MB/s — fast enough for even the highest performance DSLRs with a UHS-II interface.

Toughest Card

A monolithic construction with high hardness materials have resulted in high level of bend strength,18 times greater than the SD standard. This design eliminates the risk of physical damage and protect the data recorded onto the card. 

Ribless

World’s first ribless, no write protection switch design removed easy to break parts, such as rib and data protection switch of conventional SD cards, enhances reliability. 

Highest level Waterproof and Dustproof

Completely sealed with monolithic structure, this card is waterproof (compliant to IPX8) and recorded data is undamaged even if the card is submerged in 5 meters of water for up to 72 hours. 

Backward Compatible with UHS-I Compatible Equipment

While highest performance is obtained using a UHS-II compatible camera, users can also use these new cards in UHS-I compatible equipment with high performance (up to 95MB/s Transfer and 90MB/s Writing speeds) when using the UHS-II reader.

SD Scan Utility

SD Scan Utility helps you check the condition of your SD memory card. By scanning the flash memory, it tells you whether your SD memory card is working in good condition or is about to reach the limit.

File Rescue Downloadable Software

File Rescue software recovers files in XAVC S format taken by Sony digital imaging devices, up to 4K RAW image and MOV files. Sony/Nikon DSLR AVCHD format up to full HD 60p, and other types of files. 

Sony Vertical Grip for Sony Alpha a7R IV Camera

This Vertical Grip from Sony makes it easy to hold the camera and operate controls with nearly the same feel as when holding the camera horizontally. Double the capacity and operation time with space for two long lasting NP-FZ100 batteries. A lightweight, compact magnesium alloy design matches the dust and moisture-resistant durability of the Alpha 7R IV.

Prolonged Continuous Operation

Space for two high-capacity NP-FZ100 batteries in the grip supply additional power that doubles the effective operating time, compared with the camera alone. This ensures excellent performance while allowing the user to continue shooting in prolonged photo sessions, with no interruption.

Controls Simulate Horizontal Shooting

The VG-C4EM provides a stable grip and easy operation, with controls that mimic the location, feel and function of those used when holding the camera horizontally. This provides the user with a consistent grip and operational feel, regardless of whether the camera is being held in a horizontal or vertical position.

Reliability Matches That of the Alpha 7R IV

Dust/moisture resistance and the solidity of the magnesium alloy are similar to those of the camera body, ensuring the reliability of the entire α system.

Auto Switch

Accommodates one or two Z-series batteries. When using two batteries, the camera automatically switches from one battery to the other, for continuous operation.

USB Charging

Batteries loaded in the vertical grip can be charged via the camera’s USB port without detaching the grip from the camera. In addition, supplementary power can be supplied via the camera’s USB port for extended use.

Comfort and Ease

The VG-C4EM is designed to almost precisely match the shape of the grip on the Alpha 7R IV to provide a more comfortable grip, while buttons, chassis material, and shape are consistent with those of the camera, providing an integrated appearance and operational feel. Tray-style battery compartment lets you easily slide in batteries.

Matching Alpha 7R IV Buttons

Recent improvements to the material and shape of the Alpha 7R IV camera body have also been applied to the VG-C4EM Vertical Grip. Specifically, the grip incorporates improvements to the design of operating buttons which enhance the button pressing sensation, enlargement and optimized location of AF-ON button, and a redesigned multi-selector. The grip is broader, providing more room for the pinky and middle finger, resulting in operational “feel” that matches that of the Alpha 7R IV camera.
