    The Ixus 255 (Elph 330) has very good image quality and HD movie ability plus a 10x optical zoom. It's good in low light due to its back-illuminated CMOS sensor. Plus it has built-in WiFi. One thing it lacks, which its competitors (Nikon, Sony, Panasonic, Fuji, Olympus, Samsung) all have, is an auto-panorama mode which allows you to take panorama shots simply by moving the camera horizontally or vertically.

    Unfortunately HD movie recording time is limited in the EU. I believe it has something to do with import duties.

    The Ixus 510 (Elph 530) is very similar to the Ixus 255. They both have back illuminated CMOS sensors. The Ixus 510 has more optical zoom (12x vs 10x) and is a bit smaller, though heavier, than the Ixus 255. Image quality is very good for both - similar since they are both Canon Powershots.
    If you want substantially better image quality you'll have to look at a camera with a larger sensor, such as the Canon S110. But the S110 is more expensive than either of the two Ixus cameras.

    In the USA the Ixus 510 (Elph 530) is considerably cheaper so it would be a better buy.
    I am not aware of any.
    Sorry, I don't know the answer to your question.

    The Ixus 255 is a fine camera. I'm sure you'll like it.
