The overall construction seems more solid, alittle better image clarity/FOV, more custom settings for delay on/off time, better camo and no flashing red LED, and the PW Pro also gives me about 20 extra minutes of footage in the morning and 10 minutes more in the evening which is prime movement time for game animals. If you read Anthonys review on the DPS he sort of ask the question is the PW Pro worth the price when you can get two DPS cams for around the same cost? For some people I think the answer is no for others it would be yes. I ordered another PW Pro from custom1 yesterday so I think it's worth the extra money and I still like the PW software better than the DPS software its just faster to review footage. That doesn't mean I don't like the DPS it's a cool cam and I really like the mini size low profile shape,good battery life it's giving, and good footage overall. I think if Primos listens to customer feedback maybe does a firmware update to address the SD compatibility issue, adjust the cams light sensor for alittle earlier start time and later end time, camo that black stripe down the front of the camera for better camo in the woods, and last figure out a way to hide that flashing red LED(I am using camo tape) it would up the stock for the DPS camera. Those small improvements listed would really bring it closer to the PW Pro and at that point I would have to think real hard about spending twice the money on the PW Pro vs the DPS.
Code, Do you have the original PW to go along with PW pro ? I would like to hear how you think that it stacks up to the DPS cam. I could see maybe getting one of the first generation PW since the price should be within 20 to 30 dollars more than the DPS. I know the battery life is not as good on the plain PW, but if I can get 10 to 12 days of pics , or close to what the DPS gets, that would be enough to please me. I think all the little things that you mentioned that you liked a little more about the PW , that i would rather pay the 20 to 30 dollars more and get the original PW,if I plan on buying another timelapse cam in the future. I guess I am asking which would you choose between the orignal PW, or the DPS? I probably will buy at least one more time lapse this year,as I really do need another
