Wade, Thanks for the information on the W10.

Does your WPi have a battery that you can take out of the camera, as, carry an extra battery on a hike and replace the dead one with a charged battery when you need to?

I have been thinking about the WPi but now will wait and take a look at the W10.

Yes, the battery is removable. It lasts forever too - I filled my 512 card twice and its still going strong. And that with quite a bit of flash usage - the WPI has a slow lens and requires the help, sadly.

The W10 seems like 90% the same camera with a few new tweaks.
