In the first place, we are not the YAMMERS as referred. We are just members of Yahoo! Answers Malaysia, which logically form the word YAM. To be a member, you are logically known as YAMmer (agree?) So, that explains why we are not poor losers. We are just winners in every case. Give me 3 loud cheers!!! _
There's an easy answer. If you are seeing an image that's similar to visible light (like the camers your found) you are seeing near infrared. Near infared gets its name because it's close on the spectrum to visible light. On the other hand, if you are seeing an image that looks like you're seeing heat, you're seeing far infared. Far infared cameras are much more expensive than near infrared cameras. Note that there are different naming conventions for infrared depending on who's describing it. Notice the first link has a thermal image and describes it as mid-ir (for middle infrared). If you really want one, look for a FLIR (forward looking infrared) camera.
