Depends on the type of shooting conditions. There is virtually no such thing as an all-purpose microphone, even if you are only talking about videography. If you want a good multi-purpose microphone for location sound, I’d go with a cardioid condenser or short shotgun mic. A short shotgun condenser(which is highly directional)is probably the most ideal for recording dialogue, but you mightalso want acardioid (slightly broader in direction) condenser mic for a wider location of sound (e.g. more than one person speaking). A boom pole for your mic is ideal too.
