Question about sound equipment and post for 16mm

I apologize if this post is boring, but it might help others like me
who've never done sound for 16mm before.

I was hoping that someone on the list might be able to give me advice
both on recording sound for my films and post-production. Basically
I'm looking to buy something under $200 dollars that will be able to
record sounds that are happening while filming.

In other words, the mic doesn't need to isolate voices or any other
noise; I'd like to have all the sounds but without becoming a total

Also, since I don't know how I'll be cutting the sound, it would be
best if it were a really versatile format.

I think I'd prefer to cut sound on a Steenbeck with mag stock. Does
anyone know a place in New York where I could record sound onto mag

Lastly, does anyone know a place that will transfer a 16mm film and
mag soundtrack onto DV?

Thank you so much, in advance, if you can help me.
