Ok, MUCH MUCH better! Looks like you will need to be able to have the firmware be able to know what camera version it is in.
I did not put the beta firmware into the older camera. If you would like me to, let me know and I will. (I also have a micro)
(And yes, I see the spot on the lens, it rained today and I did not clean it off. )

Excellent, glad to see it cleared things up! We'll be rolling in this firmware to the next release, so please be sure to remove that line from system.properties prior to upgrading to the next release! Thanks again for your patience and assistance with testing.

@UBNT-Cody - is this fix only for the af version of the G3? I have been seeing similar issues with one of my original G3s with IR ring. It seems to be worse on nights when the air temperature remains high. But that could be a coincidence.
I'm impressed with the image quality @DBNet is getting in his last examples. I have never had that quality for images with lighting only from G3 with IR extender. To get that clarity I need to provide additional lighting.

So was I, that is why I was wondering what happened with the new version. Just an FYI...There are no other lights on, it is totally dark in the yard.

I too am curious whether the new firmware improves older G3 images. I have never checked to see how hot the older G3 gets when the IR (ring) is on but I have seen wisps of evaporated water coming off of it in the rain so it must get fairly hot, hot enough to affect image quality.

It is not heat as it would have happened with both cams.
Remember, the origioal images before the fix are from a UVC-G3 that came with a inline power adapter. It also had a IR Extender Ring in the shots.
I only loaded the test firmware on the NEW UVC-G3 that has power over PoE built in to work right off a switch. I did not load it on the other camera.
So this surely there is some differene that can be corrected via firmware. (Which is good.)

Sorry, it looks like I mixed up two threads related to poor image quality on IR. The following one is heat related.
