    what is a good microphone for use with a gopro?

    i have a fun idea, and i would like to mount my go-pro to the front of a shopping cart at fry's, while still having the ability to pick up conversations with employees.
    the camera alone doesn't pick up squat.

    are you guys using a hero 2 or 3? i have a 2 and the sound is kinda muffled even when im using it completely out of the plastic case (just holding it).
    it picks up really well if something is like a foot in front of it, but across a room is forget it
