You can get the camera adapter that apple sells that has a usb input.
With that the Blue Microphones Snowball mic works fine and can either work
in omni-directional mode or cardiod, the latter to point toward just one
For other mics or equipment needing more power, you'll likely need to plug
a powered usb hub into that adapter then plug the device into the usb hub.
