Recording and Amplifying your mountain dulcimer ?

Actually this is two questions:

1) What type of video/audio recorder do you use (or suggest) ? The video camera I have has records all sorts of static or background noises.

2) If you use a mic with an amplifier for a Mountain Dulcimer, what type do you use and what would you suggest? Hopefully nothing very expensive blinders

Thanks for any and all suggestions :-)
