What are the recommendations for a quality microphone for a Canon Vixia HF S20?

Depending on what you need, any of the standard mics would do like the Rhode video mics and so on. The only thing to remember is that the S20 has a smaller shoe so most standard mics do not fit. You can either buy the Canon mic that has a smaller foot, or you have to use an adaptor. I use a flash bracket and connect my Rhode mic to the flash shoe on the bracket.

I'm digging my Sennheiser MKE400. I did get the hot shoe adaptor so the mic attaches to the top of my camera.

Here's a link to a quick demo I shot:
