dslr shotgun mic or Digital Recorder
A portable recorder has these advantages:
* You can put it closer to the source of the sound.
* It can record stereo.
* It can record long audio segments even while you are videoing different short segments.
* Useful for recording ambient sound that can be edited into your video later.
* It won't pick up camera noise (eg IS/VR gyroscopes and motors).
* Easier to reduce or eliminate wind noise (eg Dead Cat).
* Easily adjust gain on the recording level.
* Doesn't take up the hot shoe.
* Some hand held recorders also accept external mics which can be hooked up to shotgun mics when needed.
* Another thing to carry.
* Synchronizing audio with video may be difficult ('DualEyes' can help with this).
* Won't point in the direction of the camera as you pan the camera around. (Sometimes this is an advantage.)
* The internal mics have a general purpose cardioid pattern when what you may need occasionally is some degree of shotgun mic.
I bought a Tascam DR-100 and I love it.
