Mixer Cables

What is the best non-directional mic for video recording?

I am going to shoot some video and I have a Canon video camera with an external mic jack. I normally use a wireless but I will need to record 4-5 people sitting around a table. One idea was to get a non directional mic and hang it above the group (out of the camera view) to record all their voices. Does anyone know what kind of mic I need and what keywords I should use to find a mic on ebay?

Thanks

If they are around the table, a boundary Microphone is what you should use. It sits on the table and looks like this - http://www.drumza.com/category/Boundary-Microphones/

You most likely, if you get one, need a mixer that can provide Phantom power as seen here - http://asimplelife.ca/boss.html, so as to power the condenser microphone. then get a dual audio Left right out of the mixer cable that on the other end has a 3.5 MM jack for your camcorder. I have one of these, I know they exist.
