I'm planing to buy an external microphone for the A77. Do you have any suggestions? Preferably not too expensive, and yet that it can be put to good use. I looked at various combinations on eBay, but I still have not decided on anything. Video is my casual hobby, and I need an external microphone as me and some guys are planing to record some stories in our city, so it's important to have a little longer cable. I looked at David's combination for recording and it is great.
Thanks for advice and sorry for my (bad) english.
