Microphone Polar Patterns

"In addition to classifying microphones by their generating elements, they can also be identified by their directional properties, that is, how well they pick up sound from various directions. Most microphones can be placed in one of two main groups: omnidirectional and directional. Omnidirectional microphones are the simplest to design, build and understand. They also serve as a reference against which each of the others may be compared." -Audio Technica Breif Guide to Microphone Theory

The labels "hypercardioid" and "supercardioid" should be the other way around. A supercardioid pattern is closer to cardioid, while a hypercardioid pattern is closer to figure-8.
