Hi Snow, which part did we mix up?  Did you see on the Canon ELPH 500 HS page it says its also known as the Canon IXUS 310 HS?  Maybe we got something wrong here, it is damn confusing the way Canon gives their cameras different names in different places :)

This site is rubish. They mixed up camera models and data (Ixus and Elph). Don't trust thi site!
