Which external microphones are folks using with their K7/K5?

Now that I have a camera with video capability, I assume I'll need an external microphone in at least some (and maybe many) circumstances. What external microphone are you using, and why?

That would take many hundreds of words to answer, but luckily for you I did just that. Read my article Capturing Sound For Video.

I've only got a K-x which does not take an external mic but I do have a high-def video camera that does. The external mic I bought was a Rode Stereo Videomic which came with a 'dead kitten' windjammer. Please note that it's not a directional shotgun mic like the cheaper monophonic Rode Videomic but it does focus on a tighter directional sound field and is less sensitive to background sound. I've been very pleased with my purchase so far, the sound quality is much better than the camcorders built in mic and the dead kitten really does work well.
