    It depends what you want to do and how much you want to spend.

    A good general purpose microphone is the "shotgun". It can be used on the camera, with a boom arm or held in the hand. The best ones are from Schoeps and cost a couple of grand. Next are the Sennheiser MKH60 at a grand and a bit. Next come a couple around the 400 mark. The Rode NTG3 (do NOT get the cheaper NTG2 or NTG1) or the Sennheiser K6-Me66 combo. Both give lovely sounds. The Rode is more robust and will take a bit of a battering, the Sennheiser has inter-changable capsules so you can expand the system later. A bit furthe down the chain come the Audio Technicas, anything less than that and you start running the risk of cheap chinese crap.
