Since I cannot afford, at this time, to buy a separate recording system, and need to record sound into the Canon 7D "directly", which of these two microphones would you suggest is the best for recording WILDLIFE sounds, and maybe an occasional interview, in the field?

1 - Rode NTG-2 Condenser Shotgun Microphone

2 - Rode Stereo VideoMic - Camera Mounted Microphone

They are both about the same price, and all I can afford right now.

And, how would I hook the NTG-2 into the camera anyway? Do I need some kind of adapter?

Thanks for any and all help.
