Viridian XTL G3 Features:

Viridian was the first to introduce a Weapon-Mounted Camera with a light and laser designed to clearly capture full-HD video and crisp audio specifically from handguns and long guns.  The XTL G3 features the addition of a full-HD digital camera and microphone, creating an entirely new category for personal protection, training and recreational/competitive shooting

The new X5L Gen 3 with Camera comes standard with a 500 lumen LED light, green laser, multiple operation modes and Viridian’s patented INSTANT-ON® technology. Combined with a 1080p full-HD digital camera and microphone, this unique solution provides convenient playback for training, range time or competitions and gives legally armed citizens an added level of reassurance when carrying or in a home defense situation.

As mentioned above, when the user chooses to utilize Viridian’s proprietary INSTANT-ON® technology, the unit automatically activates the laser, light and/or camera, depending on the pre-programmed settings, whenever the firearm is drawn from its holster. Not only does this eliminate risk of failure to manually turn on the device during a personal-defense scenario, but it allows users to conveniently capture footage to help review and correct shooting techniques or show off days at the range with their friends. The highly advanced camera provides an unobstructed view from the end of the firearm, making it an ideal replacement for homemade action cams or supplement to the everyday carry setup.

Viridian X5L G3 Camera + Laser Features:

The X5L G3 is essentially both the X5L and XTL combined with a 1080p HD camera and Green laser.  We won’t rehash the stats as that would be triple repetitive.

Remember, all three models feature instant on technology (when wanted and using their holster) USB charging, and quick change rechargeable batteries. You can purchase extra batteries separately.

Well, that’s a wrap up of the new features found on the Viridian G3 lights.  Hopefully it helps you filter the noise and choose the right light for your individual situation.  I personally would like to get my hands on an IR version of the light or even an X5L with both Camera and laser.  

Where to find it?  As usual we will link to a variety of sites.  You can obviously get it directly from Viridian or you can help us out by buying it from one of the two links below.  

Helps keep the lights on……. no pun intended!

Thanks for checking in!
