Is this a Lobar Pattern microphone?

Is this a Lobar Pattern microphone?
Asked by: Sebastián
The pickup pattern of the Rode NTG8 Moisture-Resistant Long Shotgun Microphone is categorized as supercardioid as opposed to Lobar. Lobar can often be used interchangeably with supercardioid as well as hypercardioid and is not commonly used by manufacturers to describe the pickup patterns of their shotgun microphones.

What's the difference between the NTG8 & the NTG3?
Asked by: Ryan
I have both microphones. My understanding is they have the same capsule. I use them outside with the Rycote Blimp system. The NTG8 picks up less wind sound( not distorted ) since it has a narrow pick up pattern as compared to the NTG3. There is more surface area with the NTG8 so the wind wants to move it physically. If you want to pick up a wider pickup pattern the NTG3 would do that. Both good microphones.
