Audio Technica ATR3350 Lavalier Microphone

See an update to this review over at youtu.be The Zoom H1 records great sound but for video, you don’t necessarily want an imposing recording device in your picture. And trying to place the microphone outside the picture introduces all sorts of ambient noise. Using the US ATR3350, you get an inexpensive lavalier microphone (sometimes referred to as a lapel mic) with passable quality. The key is that it gets the microphone close to your actor or talent though it may require some EQ (equalization) to roll off the low-end rumble, mid level harshness, and high-end brashness.
