What mic to use with a Sony DV Cam

Hi all-

A friend of mine's about to go to Japan and is going to be recording some live bands on the cheap using his new DV cam, a Sony DCR-VX2100. He's asked me what mic to get to improve the quality of his field recordings and I haven't got a clue.

Is there anything kind of on the cheap that might get the job done that would surpass the quality offered by the stock mic on the dv cam?

Any thoughts appreciated.

If he wants a mic he can plug straight into the camera's 1/8" stereo mini jack, consider the Audio Technica 822. The 822 is the unbalanced version of the 825, the output is on a 3 pin XLR (Left hot, right hot, Ground) & comes with an XLR to stereo mini adapter. A decent stereo XY mic, can be had for around $250. Sony also makes some similarly configured mics.
