About the Canon DM-E1D

Improve the audio quality of your video footage

I was stoked when Canon announced a new multi-function hot shoe for select camcorders and cameras (like their mirrorless flagship R3). It adds welcomed features and control options for a new lineup of accessories, like the DM-E1D stereo microphone.

This compact mic offers three recording modes (90°, 120°, and shotgun) for capturing high-resolution audio that matches the quality of your camera's crisp 4K video footage. You can even record outside with the included windscreen, which helps reduce wind noise and other unwanted peripheral sounds.

Product Research

Features

Overview: The Canon DM-E1D Directional Stereo Microphone enables you to achieve high-quality audio when recording videos with your compatible Canon digital camera. The microphone includes a slip-on "furry" wind screen to reduce wind noise.

Compatibility: The DM-E1D is compatible with Canon EOS digital SLR cameras that have the Multi-Function Shoe. This includes the EOS R3, R7, and R10. It is also compatible with the XF605 Professional Camcorder.

Multi-Function Shoe: Canon's Multi-Function Shoe provides a simple solution for mounting and connecting the DM-E1D microphone. The mic has a mounting foot and a sliding lock for a secure mount on your camera. The Multi-Function Shoe also supplies a digital audio connection between the camera and microphone, as well as the power to the microphone. The lack of wires means the audio signal path is less susceptible to noise or interference.

Directivity: The microphone can operate in either mono or stereo. Adjusting the microphone settings requires pressing the Menu button on the back of the mic, and using the touchscreen LCD on the back of the EOS camera. There are three Directivity settings:

  • Shotgun (Mono): The Shotgun (mono) setting is recommended for recording subjects directly in front of the camera, such as for interviews, single performers, or for relatively distant subjects including birdwatching.
  • 90° (Stereo): The 90° Stereo setting is for everyday situations, and for small musical groups, or a single subject with some adjacent sound.
  • 120° (Stereo): The 120° Stereo setting is ideal for recording large groups of singers, or an orchestra, where sound is coming from a wide area. It is also an ideal setting for picking up natural sounds of nature all around you.

Sound Recording Level: There are three Sound Recording Level settings in the camera's menu: Auto, Manual, and Disable. In Manual, you can adjust the sound recording level as needed, and view a level meter in the camera's LCD screen. When Disable is selected, the camera will not record sound through the microphone.

Other Settings: Once you are in your camera's Sound Recording menu, you can enable/disable the Wind Filter and the Attenuator. The Wind Filter reduces noise picked up in the microphone from wind hitting the microphone. Enabling the filter also reduces the bass response of the microphone. The Attenuator automatically suppresses distortion caused by sudden loud noises.

Wind Screen: The DM-E1D comes with a slip-on wind screen to help reduce the effect of wind noise in the microphone.
