Yes, I have them both, very good cameras. Initially they just changed the name of the Pro to Nest and then they released a Nest branded camera.
People complain that you have to pay a subscription in order to make the most out of this cameras, however I am paying and I am extremely happy with the now called Nest using these cameras. Excellent quality, 24/7 recording on the cloud, very easy scrolling through the recorded footage, truly an "Apple-like experience"... from a company owned by Google.

I don't think there is a difference. Nest bought out Dropcam and, to my knowledge, re-released the Dropcam Pro as the Nest Cam in a slightly different body.

I really thought I wanted one of these, up until it came time to actually buy one. Looks like I am passing and taking it off my alert. The subscription pretty much kills it for me. I currently have nests thermostats and protects, and was going to get this too. Maybe one day.

I was off put by the subscription as well but as it turns out I didn't need it anyways. I'm not trying to do an all day timelapse or see what my pet was doing during the day. For me it was about having a live video feed and a motion detector. I have one of these at each entry point to my home and it's tied into my Nest. So when my Nest goes to Away mode then the cameras come on. If there is motion then I get a notification from the app and I can pull it up to see what happened.

Also Nest now gives 3 hours of free history, again perfect for my needs. This post gives you a better idea of the differences of free vs paid.
