External Mic for Contour +2

Does anyone know where I can find a cheap external mic for my contour? Nothing professional quality, but something better than the internal.

Not sure exactly what type of external mic you were after, but I'd look at the Audio-Technica ATR-3350 if you want a cheap, but decent lavaliar mic.

It's about $25-ish. It's a little soft when you record, so you have to bump up the volume in editing and for the price you won't really find a better external lavaliar without spending a little more money.

Another option is the Sony ECM DS70P, on ebay for about 15 bucks (last time I searched). Assuming it's the same 3.5mm, here's a video of a generic version of it in use that you can find on ebay for around 8 bucks.
