How to choose an external microphone?

I need an external microphone for my sony rx100 vii, but have no idea where to start. People say it's good to be able to connect external mics, but they never say which one. Somewhat of an obvious omission there.

Obviously it needs to be smallish and capable of providing better audio than the on board audio.

I've seen sony microphones in the $400 range, are cheaper options worth it? I would like to spend less than $40, but let's leave my personal budget aside for a moment. I need options from more knowledgeable people.

I am clueless, please help.
