Polar patterns shows how much a microphone picks up from different angles -- and I've tried to go about showing it in an interesting and easily understandable way in this video.

As commenters have noted, when showing the omni mic, the capsule was moved further back. If it were kept in place the demonstration would have been more effective, but I also may have been flossing with a mic cable :)

In this video from the AudioPropellor Guide to Audio Gear For Your Computer I show how the major microphone pickup patterns look and respond.

Knowing this stuff with let you pick the right microphone for the job at hand.

Here is the performance video I mentioned in the clip, concerning the bi-directional Fat Head Cascade Mic.
