You can find Digital Audio Recorders (DAR) on Ebay that would work fine, if fed from main out on a mixer. Just make sure the DAR has USB ports, or removable storage media, if getting the latter. you will need a card reader.
To sync the Audio with the Video, one just need to be in front of the Camera and close to the Microphone(s), and then CLAP your hands together.
