Hello
Does anybody know if the G3 uses the same lens of the G2?
Has anybody taken out the infrared filter to be able to take NIR pictures with a G3? I know it's been done with the G2.
Thank you.

I think it might do, but a safer option, is to use the slave module, it uses a standard M12 , its very easy to unscrew, i replaced with a standard NIR lens and it worked great with IR led torch, only issue is not rtsp stream yet with slave camera. This way no risk of damaging main camera unit. Also very easy to slightly unscrew lens to get macro mode.

G3 lens is not same as G2, but you still can remove the IR filter.
Git2 and G3 is very popular for aerial mapping.

ive heard the G3 housing and lens is trickier to take apart than the Git2, I found the slave camera very easy to take apart, and a left over M12 CCTV lens fitted perfectly. so I can record IR with a set of IR LEDs for illumination, and just unplug slave when I want to use G3 normal lens

It would be great if viofo/gitup made a bodycam, as they are just like action cameras but with IR

We don't have plan to develop a body camera, but we will release a IR version for dashcam.
