Hi, I need some advice. Currently I own a A129 Duo IR. I understand that IR rear cam is for interior shot and can be as a rear cam. My question is, since I don't have a A129 Duo to compare with. Does the A129 Duo rear cam capture better footage than IR rear cam? Since there is a Duo Rear cam only in sales, I'm considering to get it if this rear cam is better suit than the IR rear cam for rear footage.

I've tested both and didn't notice any significant difference.
I know the IR cabin unit is more sensitive to IR light but that's about it.
Here is the IR cam being used as a rear camera but it's not the best example.

The IR camera is superior
- better focus
- 180 degree lens rotation for exterior or interior view
- wider angle field of view
- can be used as normal rear exterior camera when selecting color mode to disable IR LEDs

When will the rear IR camera be available for sale seperately for those that want to update their non-IR camera. I understand that you can just flash the IR firmware onto the non-IR and make it the IR
