Will the matched pair still be a matched pair if I replace it with two NT45-O omnidirectional capsules?
If you replace one of the RODE NT5 Cardioid Studio Condenser Microphones in a matched pair, it should be very close, but may not be identical to the other mic.

Can I plug this into a 3.5mm mini input on my DSLR and camcorder with a Kopul LMT-100 adapter on the end?. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/885062-REG/kopul_lmt_100_lo_to_hi_impedance.html
This mic can not be directly plugged into the 3.5mm input of a camera since they require 48v to operate. If you did want to connect this to a camera, you would a mixer with an xlr input and phantom power such as this BH #SASRPAX1.

Why do you need a match pair?
Why do you need a match pair?
Hello Tom, A matched pair of microphones keeps them as accurate as possible for stereo recording techniques. If they are different, then the stereo image could potentially change. If you're recording in stereo, we highly recommend the matched pair.

Why are my NT5 pairs creating some buzzing noise ...
Why are my NT5 pairs creating some buzzing noise when the XLR cables are being touched? No matter what gain level it's at, same problem. (Btw, I'm connecting the pairs to the Tascam X8.) Will some better XLR cables help?
If buzzing noise occurs when you touch the XLR cables, it could be a problem with the cables and the shielding or a bad ground connection inside the cables. Try swapping out one cable at a time and see if it makes any difference. Keep the mics away from any fluorescent lights, computers, monitors, or other items that tend to hum. You can also try plugging your amplifier, mixer, recorder, interface, or other device that the mics are connected to or any other electronic items within the signal chain into a different power outlet. Sometimes the power line can be the source of the noise. But the first thing to check is the cables. If the cables are good and the noise is coming from the power line, you can use a power conditioner to help eliminate the noise. Please feel free to contact us directly by phone or through live chat and we can help you to troubleshoot.

Can I connect these directly to my Zoom F3 ( since the NT5 has Male 3 Pin XLR) or do I need an XLR connector?
Although the Rode NT5 Cardioid Studio Condenser Microphones have XLR male connections onboard, their form factor would not allow them to be connected directly to the inputs on the Zoom F3 Portable Field Recorder. The NT5 should make connection to the F3's inputs via standard 3-Pin XLR cable.

Is this suitable for stereo Audio/Video recording in an X/Y arrangement?
I've used these mics in both XY and ORTF stereo arrangements The results were always great. The mics provide a clear sound and are sturdy and reliable. At this price point they're very affordable for small diaphragm condensers.
