Or are Rode just being casual, sloppy and generic in calling the typical SD mic "half-inch" ? We shall soon find out, no doubt.... Also, the one described here is cardioid....I trust they'll produce an omni capsule too ?
My guess is that it's an NT-5 with the TF-45C capsule they're using on the NT-SF1. (The capsule designation seems a dead giveaway...) Oh, and maybe the new output connector they were threatening when this whole exercise began? (BTW, I contacted Rode when the NT-SF1 came out and asked if the capsules were available separately - they said "no.")
