Microphone advice needed

Hi Guys
I thought I would ask the hive mind.
I have been experimenting with videos at gigs. And my big problem is that the built in mike is swamped.
So is there any advice on the right external mike to get for the job. Its probably important to note that I am often found in the 105 Db zone around the band, so one that can handle LOUD would be good.
I have tried a few, they are lurking here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5E..._as=subscriber (I think). The picture is pretty good, but the sound needs help.
Thanks in advance.

Re: Microphone advice needed

I bought the cheaper end of Rode range and it seems very good for what I need and what I paid

Re: Microphone advice needed

Thought I'd have a quick research myself .... nearly two hours later, this microphone worth considering

Not the smallest they do but seems great for the job, independently powered, shouldn't affect the running time with camera battery.
