The Wig Effect ~ Sony ZV1 Mic Review

Audio review of the new Sony ZV-1 / ZV1 camera , testing the internal microphone : demonstrating the ‘wig effect’ with the fuzzy windscreen.

The internal microphone clearly picks up far more noise from inside the camera, when covered with the supplied fuzzy windscreen , the wig … as filmmaker Philip Bloom first called it.

It is a noise I know well from using other cameras – the compact Sony T cameras – in underwater housings.

So , best to not use the wig on top of the ZV1 microphone , when not needed – like for indoor interviews.
