Reply To: 3.5mm to xlr adaptor – does it make it balanced?

Well – yes you can, if you understand electronics and can build the circuit to convert one power type to another. A camera with +5V hot power superimposed on the audio, or as a dedicated supply voltage as a separate core is much more difficult convert to 48V balanced phantom power, but circuits exist to up the voltage and carry out the balancing. In practical terms, if you are no good with a soldering iron – just buy the appropriate mic type for your camera.
