canon SX255 HS not in database

Could the SX255 HS be added to the dpreview database, somehow it seems to have got overlooked which makes searching and filtering inaccurate.

Maybe its IXUS 255 HS, I never could figure out canon's naming convention.

Thanks for reporting this.

Are you referring to the Canon PowerShot IXUS 255 HS / ELPH 330 HS or another SX-series PowerShot? I can't find an example of an SX 255 anywhere.

The former isn't in our database and I'll have our reviewers take a look at that omission tomorrow.

Personally I don't understand Canon's PowerShot naming scheme either. There are just so many PowerShots...

Its the IXUS I think, I'm from Australia so i don't know what it is called really, but you can see one at this link: http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/canon_ixus_255_hs_review/

A few people have asked about it at the canon powershot forum and its a nice balanced zoom spec.

Thanks

Brian

I'm really confused now, the Elph 330HS/IXUS 255 HS on your website http://www.dpreview.com/products/canon/compacts/canon_elph330hs

shows a 16mp 24-120mm camera,

but the IXUS 255 HS in this link,

http://www.photographyblog.com/reviews/canon_ixus_255_hs_review/

shows a 12mp 24-240mm camera.

It is the one in the link I provided that is incorrect or missing in the database.

So not only was the item hidden - the specs were completely wrong. I've cleaned them up and everything should (hopefully) be accurate now.

Thanks for pointing this out!

I suspect the image associated with the IXUS 255 HS in the database is the wrong one as well, could you check and correct this please.
