Hello, I just got a T3i.
I'm looking for a microphone to hook up into the 3.5 jack on the side of the cameras body. My budget is anything under 150$

Rode, Sennhiser, Azden, sony, etc, etc.
Your ears are the best tool to decide on one under $150
If your just after a step above the internal mic the gembird is a good starting point.
If your after higher quality what ben_r said is a good starting point

Stay away from that Sennheiser MKE-400. Ive owned it, compared it and its by far the worst hot shoe mic out there. Find reviews online, youll find the same.

I am quite happy with this one, especially for the price. I use mine to record my son's jazz and percussion ensemble concerts.

I use the rode videomic all the time, sounds way better than the internal one. I'd probably spring for the newer videomic pro if i needed to buy one again, only because it's much smaller. The videomic can be quite large, especially if you're using a small prime.

No, it fits on my 7D's hotshoe just fine.

May I ask why you don't consider a separate high quality sound recorder such as Zoom H1 that significantly improves your audio instead of in camera sound that is still so so, when zoom H1 is under $100?

Yes i use them but you have to make sure you are close to the subject or the full 100 volume or it is still not good enough...to low. the rode video mic still has a slight hiss when recording, but i have heard the rode video mic pro is better, so i use voice recorders on the subject with lapel mic into the recorders , then a h1 nearby, and use the rode also all to be safe then pick the best or mix in post...
