Hi All,

There are times while traveling that I have opportunities to get some astonishing video footage of wildlife and the culture of people who show us how amazing and alive they are. While I will continue to primarily tell the stories of the places to which I travel, and the people I meet, periodically, I want to capture some video.

I've learned one thing while making a few practice videos, the internal mic in the D4 picks up every noise of the camera and it's awful.

So I need some help from those of you who have been doing some quality video with your D4.

I need recommendations for an external mic. I don't want to break the bank, but I don't want to purchase so cheap that it's either not going to hold up, or I'm going to be disappointed in the results. I also need recommendations on any mic accessories (I know I need to protect it from the wind.).

Finally, while you're at it, if you have any other accessories to recommend to help me make videos, lay them on me.

My one caveat is that I must be able to travel with any of the accessories I purchase. After all, I'm primarily a travel photographer.

Thanks for your help.
