Next purchase after H5 for field recording?

Picked up a H5 for $100 off, now I'm considering what extra mic I could buy to aid in field recording. I'm still on a budget. I was thinking a shotgun mic maybe or different kind of mic to compliment the H5 X/Y. Any suggestions of where to go next?

I have just bought a similar device, and as I am just recording various pipe organs, for my own listening pleasure, I was recommended a pair of Rhode 55's omni

Thanks for the reply. Rode NT55 is outta my budget at the moment. I was thinking I might want to get a shotgun mic.

Have you used the H5 yet? What are you recording with it? What do you want to record that the X-Y mics don't do a good job of?

I'd suggest using the H5 for awhile first before you buy anything else, so that you will have a better idea of what you actually need.

I pick it up tomorrow. I'm looking to record for vlogging as well as sounds for music production.
