Sony ECMCS3 Lavalier Microphone

I use the Sony ECMCS3 as my “go to” mic for making YouTube videos.
The video below is my whole review, but here are the bullet points:

  • Very sensitive and picks up sound very loudly, so positioning is important
  • Uses “plug in power” so it won’t work with many smart phones and laptops
  • Works great with a DSLR or portable recording device
  • Cord is about three feet (90cm) long
  • Clip rotates 360 degrees, but is made of cheap, slippery plastic and loses grip easily
  • Very affordable at about $15
