Canon T2i Rebel microphone

I was wondering if anyone knows of a good microphone that can be used with the T2i? I am looking at recording some video and would need a microphone to give to people while I record using the camera.. Any suggestions and or locations in the GTA that may sell microphones for the T2i?

Thanks in advanced!

You can try this cheap Wireless Lapel set from eBay: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/380209374255

Looks very pro for interviews and such.
Thanks guys for your feedback. Will this MIC also work on the camera? are there any special conditions or any mic with a 2.5mm connector will work on this camera? In a bit of a time crunch so would like to get it asap (locally if possible or overnight shipping). http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6836191010

You can get "SG-108 Shotgun DV Stereo Microphone" from amazon. I think it is appropriate for you.

I would suggest an off camera microphone then. Either a unit like the Zoom H4N or some kind of wireless sennheiser lapel unit. A hot shoe mounted mic will pick up other noise including the camera.
Depends on your subject......

Zoom H4N is pricey and probably overkill for OP....

and the sennheiser costs more than the T2i itself...and probably overkill for OP.

OP.....what are you shooting?...

Shot gun mics are great for keeping mobile and directional, will pick up anything you point it to.

Stereo mics are great for music, environmental sound but it will pick up EVERYTHING around you including yourself.

Wireless systems are great for...being wireless. The lapel mic itself can be bought omni directional or directional.

There's no single solution, I use all three.

Rode Video Mic Pro or regular version (pro is better built) would work. I would also keep an eye on eBay as some shotgun Sennheiser mics commonly go on sale for $30-50 below MSRP.

but honestly , i bought zoom h1 for less then 100 and happy since then. i put it anywhere i want -table ,floor,etc for better sound, i can adjust levels on the fly, i can connect any mic and phones, i can put it on top of camera as it has a connection. And quality of recording is much higher.

Thanks for everyones input. I was mainly going to use this for quick interviews for a small video for a friend I was doing nothing over the top/professional needed. Ended up getting this and picking it up from puraltor tomorrow.

It's a Sony Tie-Tac Lavaliere Microphone. Will use this with an extension.

The H1 is not bad for the money, but what I hate is the cheap build and plastic thread for mounting. Eventually it wears out and strips....

Tascam DR-07 is awesomer, better build quality, better controls.
