Does such a beast even exist - shotgun to cardioid condenser mic

Is there such a SDC that can function as a directional shotgun mic, and also as a cardiod mic perhaps just by swapping capsules?

Some gigs on IEMs I need the shotguns for ambient mics, but it'd be nice if they could pull double duty for micing choir, extra percussion etc on other gigs.

Asking too much?

Nope, Audix M1255B cardioid, replacement shotgun capsule Audix CPSMICROS. Standard application for these guys as ambient mics, small footprint too.

Well, that'll probably do it. Thank you! Perhaps new they are a bit spendier than I'd like.

Open to other suggestions of similar concepts - otherwise I'll look out for a used pair.
