The mic I generally recommend for starters is the CAD M179. It's been described as "a poor man's AKG 414" - versatile, sounds good on just about everything, multi-pattern, has a switchable pad & HPF, and I believe it should be around or less than 150 - check with your local DV shop.

You can buy the M177 too, same capsule but limited to a cardioid polar pattern , so if you want omni or super you've got to spend the (teeny bit!) of extra dosh for the 179.

Yes, there are better mics out there, but for the price this one can't be beaten IMHO, and it's worlds better than your C1.
