NEX-6 external mic solution

One of the things that's missing in the NEX-6 is the mic input jack.  Sony has introduced on CES2013 an  external mic, the Sony ECM-XYST1M that uses the new multi interface hotshoe.  It retails for around US$149.00

Sony USA is accepting pre-orders with a delivery date of March 15, 2013.

I am not sure yet if the power is drawn from the camera or it can be powered on its own.  I would love to test this and try it against the Zoom H1 which I currently use.


  1. Hi crisgruba, do you know if there are tested wireless flash triggers available for the nex6? Thanks.

  2. this might work with the NEX-6 as well

  3. Why in the hell didn't Sony give the Nex-6 an external mic jack. Like giving us a car without air-con. Stingy.
