What camera sensor is used in AdaFruit 1367, 1567, 1937?

Is there a typo in the AdaFruit 1567 web page? The camera sensor (OV5647) that is shown is likely incorrect?
It is the same sensor that is claimed to be used in the 1367, but that doesn't seem possible... even if you consider that the 1567 comes with a small piece of cut filter film... which just changes the rendering color a little... it doesn't help "see" very much.

I tested the 1567 and it has pretty good response to using InfraRed LEDs. It used my home surveillance system to light up the scene at night and turned off all other lights. I don't know if the home surveillance uses 650 nm or 850 nm leds.

The 1367 fails to display anything in the IR situation (in the dark). Therefore, they both can't be on OV5647.

OmniVision's web site does not indicate anything about night vision in the OV5647. Therefore, it can't have night vision built-in to the sensor array, otherwise, it would indicate so just like OmniVision describes for their OV4682.

In short, I would like to:
Confirm that OV5647 is used for AdaFruit 1367.
Determine which sensor is used for AdaFruit 1567?
Determine which sensor is used for AdaFruit 1937 (nothing is shown in AdaFruit web site).

I'm looking for an OV5640 sensor too, so I'm wondering if the 1937 is actually an OV5640.

Thanks for your help!

We do not make these boards so we have no control over the parts used but the 1367 has an IR filter built into the lens where the 1567 does not. I'll check to see if someone knows which sensor is in these devices.
