Powershot is the US name and Ixus is the europe and asia name. I have the Ixus 220 hs and i love it!

why the pics at the bottom show the cameras as "PowerShot" ? They are IXUS

Thanks for comparison. Just for reference though, the canon web site states that BOTH the 220 HS and the 230 HS support 24 frames per second in full hd movie mode so you may want to correct your comparison comment above. See link below to 230 HS spec:
