Lavalier Microphones Pipeline with a Video Camera?

I have a question regarding the use of a Lavalier microphone in conjunction with a camera. I'm relatively new to Video Production, but for fun me and some friends are getting into skits (something as a semi-actor I've always wanted to do) and short movies.
I was looking at this camera: http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/canon-canon-powershot-sx50-hs-12-1mp-50x-optical-zoom-digital-camera-with-mini-tripod-black-sx50-hs/10232633.aspx?path=ec13bb5489069c61c9a15f921afcde41en02
And this microphone:
I was just wondering first of all if these two products are even compatible with each other?
If they are, what is the quality of the two? Remembering that we are on budgets as students.
So, what exactly is the pipeline between the two? How do I get the audio from the lapel microphones into the video, into the computer editing software? Does this mean that the 'cameraman,' needs to be walking around with a laptop to receive the lavalier microphone audio as well as the camera?
Sorry if the question is unclear, or if this is in the wrong section.
