I'm replacing my Zoom Q3HD recorder with ZoomQ4N. For the audio I've been using a matched pair of Rode NT5 mics usually in ORTF configuration, connected to a small mixer with phantom power capability, which in turn connects to Zoom's line in. That way I get video and audio in a single recording, avoiding having to sync them later, so I'll just need to trim out the excess, and save the best take. If I want to do any processing with the audio (such as normalize the level, or add some reverb), it's easy to extract from the video and paste back after processing.
As an alternative to NT5 pair, I've sometimes used Samson VR88 ribbon mic connected to Golden Age Project PRE-73 MKII preamp.
However, I feel that the setup used won't make much difference if the recording room sounds bad, which was the case for me, and therefore the single best thing to improve the audio quality in my recordings was to acoustically treat the recording room. I have a diffuser at the ceiling (although I'm not sure how much difference does it make), a bass trap in the nearest corner, and some absorber panels placed on critical spots at the walls.
