The internal camera-mic IMHO is of no use other than reference sound.
An often used and often recommended external mic is the Rode Video Mic which will give you decent sound.

The best quality sound you'll only get with external solutions. Advantage: you can position your mics as close as possible to really get the cleanest sound. But you'll have to sync in post.

Very widely used is the Zoom H4N recorder. You can plug in any types of microphones and it has quite good built-in mics as well. I use the Tascam-DR40 which is sort of the direct competitor of the Zoom but a bit less expensive. Sound quality is absolutely comparable.

Found two very informative videos that compare both recorders:
