Sennheiser ME66 shotgun. Short shotgun.  Very popular mic amongst video-heads.  Takes battery power or phantom.  Freq response is 40 - 20,000.  Run about $300 used on eBay.

pretty much any mic that you use for audio can be used for camcorders.  i recommend the realistic 33-1065 if you can find one (it's out of production).  old school stealth filmers will agree.

First you need to decide which camera you will work with?
There is a significant difference between the microphone for the gopro camera and the powerful DSLR Video Cameras
I recommend to look from models Razer, Apogee and Rode - these are probably the most budget and high-quality options.
maybe this review can help you with the choice:

I use a Rode Stereo Videomic Pro with integrated Rycote shockmount.  It's x/y stereo, so not great for dialog, but good for ambient sound in a run-and-gun situation.  Considering the price, I'm very satisfied with it for family videos and the very limited amount of concert video I've shot.

The question was asked in 2004.  ;)

I hope he found what he was looking for. :)

I heard through credible sources that, like Bono, he STILL hasn't found what he's looking for.
I recommend the Sony ECM 907C.
