The DM-E1D allows you to shoot in a noisy environment without recording much ambient noise. The microphone structure blocks entry of noise interference caused by external sources, capturing sharp digital audio even in louder environments.


With 3 types of directivity Shotgun, 90˚ and 120˚, there's a setting for most environments . This allows you to capture rich audio without the hassle of using multiple microphones.

  • Shotgun is a focused recording mode that picks up a narrow band of sound in front of the camera, making it suitable for dialogues, single musical instruments, or other specific subjects.
  • 90° stereo recording mode is suitable for a single subject and adds some audio context to the sides to suit recording small groups of people.
  • 120° stereo recording mode offers a wider angle of sound that is ideal for recording larger groups in more expansive areas, such as a band on stage or an outdoor party.


The Canon DM-E1D only has one button at the back of the unit, allowing all settings to be easily managed from the camera screen.
