Now you need to get equipment to record your dialog; a microphone, a boom pole (you can make one out of a paint pole from a hardware store if you're really on a budget), a recording device, and possibly a small mixer (if you want more control while you're recording... I use one)
There are lots of decent mics that you can get for under around $300-ish dollars. I have an Audio Technica that's worked great for me. Get a shotgun mic, not a regular mic.
Recording device: Get something that has a stable run, meaning NO ANALOG RECORDERS, unless it's something like an older Nagra that has crystal sync.
Your choices are DAT, CD recorders, MiniDisk (this is what I use).
The Minidisc recorders are great, but falling out of favor with the general public because of MP3 recorders (which is bizarre, since MP3 sounds worse...)
You record your audio when you're filming, but your camera & audio recording device are not connected in any way.
You shoot your film, have it transferred to video (preferrably a digital format) digitize that into your computer, digitize your audio into your computer, and THIS is when you sync them up, using editing software, like Adobe Premier, Sony Vegas Video, Final Cut Pro (if you have a Mac) and lots of other lower end editing software.
Hope this helps.

With the crystal and the other items mentioned above you will be prepared to shoot in almost any situation.

Simon, I've got a 6080 I need fixed. Where did you get your camera repaired and how much did it cost? Any info would be helpful. Thanks!
Thanks for the response, i'm kind of used to no one replying to my questions so i was very glad for the advice, i will take heed.
as for repairs, yes yes very tricky business and i feel tentative about aiding anyone along that very precarious road , my wallet is still hurting.
but here goes...ok. now my camera is arriving back tomorrow so i am yet to confirm the full reparation of my camera, notice my extreme caution here. The man you want to speak to about nizo repairs is:
Scharcherl kino-video technik
Anzengruber str 1
00 49 (0) 8142 12262
I got this recommendation off of the 8 mm film meta directory, which basically says that he's the man, very impressive, bought up all spare nizo parts when factory and company closed down. Now the problem is he doesn't speak so much english! My advice to you is get a grip ith what is wrong with your camera first, and try your best to get the most acurate quote on phone before you send it - and hold him to it if you can. problem is he really has the corner on the whole market, and he is a nice guy and maybe i'm just whinning because i am a cheapo, but hey soon i'll have my nizo back with 6 months gurantee also on repairs. You get the feeling he and his team are effecient and very professional. ok so lastly to price: for a reparation of lightmeter, new circuit board and some re justifying of teh film transporter it cost 419 ? = £288 !!! yes i know its alot but don't nobody send me any posts saying what i dope i am and how i got ripped, please, pretty please.
hope that helps

I have a nifty little Fostex batery powered mixer with built-in compressor, but look around & you will find one.
MD is more than good enough for dialog, and I've recorded quite a bit of foley & FX with mine.
By the way, the Nizo 6080 is so quiet you won't need a barney.
