There is more than just FW... the Pro2 is just that a newer model from the Pro and yes, they do react differently.

 

I've always found the Pro to be a bit better in the night over the Pro2 with te overall picture.... But, needless to say the switch over to B/W is controlled in the camera on received light levels and there no no user control of this. The Pro2 cameras just does it a bit faster ( at a higher light level ) and it is how the camera works

Yep hope they have setting for light sensitive, or fix the bug which record B/W color while the room have full of light but floor is dark carpet.

It's not a bug, it's like any camera system that looks at the whole scene to determine exposure. You can get that with a cell phone camera or even expensive cameras set on automatic. My Best example was from my early days of photography when shooting a car race - the exposure was perfect when shooting one corner. The next corner had a black galss building in view, leading me to think I needed to change settings. In fact I did not but the light meter was telling me to do so which would have greatly washed out the car while exposing the black building "properly".
