At LEAFFEST 2013, we wanted to do a rigorous test of all the webcams we've been testing as Infragram Webcam candidates, so we taped them all to a board and set them up to photograph the same scene in succession, along with photos on some of the Canon Infragram converted cameras we're more confident in. Here are all the raw photos; filenames reflect the camera model code and the two different filters we tested them with; the Rosco 2007 and the 74:

Sunny day test 1

The next day we did another run in the sun, both in dappled mixed light with the same setup, and also in very bright direct midday sun in the garden.

This camera also rapidly switched back and forth from being blueish to not bluish; here's the alternate 2007:

This camera seemed to overexpose and wash out in full sun, but only at the max resolution. Dropping resolution to 800x600 turned out fine:

We managed to get one in slightly reduced sun, and it worked fine at full res; 74:
