I've been using a Rode VideoMic Pro as a camera top mike, works well and there's an inexpensive wind jammer available.
Got some amazing results in demanding positions.

When working with a boom pole mounted mike and no dedicated sound recordist I've been using Rode NTG 2 (normally with a Sennheiser plug on transmitter and a receiver on the camera). This way journalist, reporter or producer can roam with the mike on a grip free from cables. It would also be possible with a little ingenuity to adapt the Rode VideoMic Pro to this as it has its own built in shock mount.

I think I chose the Rode VideoMic Pro over the Sennheisser MKE 400 because of the quality of the shock mount systems, the mics are similarly priced and in performance quality.
