Hi Monique, Although this doesn't directly answer your question, I came across a blog a while ago that has a few DIY tips for recording sound.
http://postsound.blogspot.com/ While it won't help you directly it might provide a few helpful suggestions or trigger some other thoughts about recording sound and improving sound quality. Wikipedia also has a good entry on microphones, that might help to determine what kind of microphone best suits your needs. I.e. Omnidirectional, cadioid, hyper-cardioid, bi-directional, shotgun. We've been using a camera mounted shotgun microphone for our FEZ TV stuff. We've recorded some interviews using radio microphones, (not yet edited) but this was cause the guy who does camera is a sound recordist in his day job and had the equipment on standby.
