Seinhesser are normally good I guess.
Also where to buy please.
A fair few camera mountable mics Here
The Seinhesser MK300D has been used by a few people on this forum and seems to give very good results. If useing on a camcorder you really do need to go for the more expensive MK300D.
Sorry - forgot to mention - I have a Panasonic camcorder for it to fit on.
Sennheisser MKE300 is a great wee mic for the cash (having said that, it ain't particularly cheap in consumer terms), word to the wise, before you buy one try it on your cam inthe shop and go to the wide angle, you may find that the mic is visible at the top of the frame, this is a problems with very compact camcorders, or where the hotshoe is more or less directly above the lens..
you can get a L-grip from Jessops for a tenner which lets you mount the mic off camera (so less handling noise, and actually imorves the camcorders ahndling into the bargain.
bear in mind that this particular mic is mono, on some camcorders it gives you a linear stereo track (the sound is identical left & right), on others it records on to the left channel only. Check your edit system has the ability to clone audio from left to right...
or yu could try what the crazy guy with the digi 8 cam did.
