I use a Zoom H1

I currently use a Zoom H1 for off-camera audio recording. It runs about $100USD, and is very capable. My experience with it suggest that it may not be as directional as you want though, so you may consider the Zoom H2n (about $200USD) which has various options for configuring its internal mics that allow for more directionality.

My reasons for needing it are a little different than yours though. I like to video live local bands, and the sound pressure levels at the shows were completely overwhelming the built-in mics.
