what kind of good (but not too expensive) external mic would be good to shoot light events (video mapping,...) like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rctzYgj4u24
The camcorder is a Sony PJ 620 with external mic input.

The best thing to do would be to tap directly into the sound system.
Rode makes very good inexpensive camera mounted mics -- but realistically there's no single good answer. Presumably every event will be different, every location will have a different acoustic profile, the camera will have a different relationship to the source of the sound every time.
This is a recent thread you might find interesting (at least my general suggestions would also apply for you)
