Video Sound Help Request

Hello good folk,

My Sister and I are undertaking a project to create a short documentary film in South East Asia, we are on a shoe-string budget and will be aiming to make the film using two Canon G12s as we both own the camera (ambitious I know!).

I suggested we record the sound separately using an external recorder and dub it back over afterwards but I am clueless to what would be adequate. Can anyone suggest a device capable of recording to an SD or SDHC card that will provide good quality sound and what file format should we use for the best quality?

Also, if we were to raise the funds for a video capable DSLR, is the video quality and controlls on a Canon 550D equal to the video capabilities of a 60D? I have an EOS 40D plus a selection of lenses so Canon must be the brand.
