Default Camera mic/Boom Mic

I need to get a mic for my canon camera. And if possible make a boom for the mic too.
Any recomendations for a mic? Something around $50 if possible.

Thanks

What connection types do you have for the mic. and what are you looking to record (as in music performances, mainly speech etc.)?

i made a boom mic using a shower rod, a cheapo mic that came with my headset, tape, and one of those sound softeners you see on real mis.

sounded great

Checking that out.

We need it for voice mainly. Like dialougue scenes in a movie.
Think a shotgun mic might be a better way to go to get overall good sound?

For connections, the camera has a hot shoe, but other then that I think thats all...

Thanks for the ideas for the boom.

well then you can't have an sm-58. you are really limited in terms of mics if you ONLY have a hotshoe
