Powershot A3300 vs A3300 IS

Im looking to buy a camera solely to use CHDK on. Im a little scared to spend 100-200$ on a camera with out knowing if its going to work. I noticed that the Powershot A3300 is listed in the table of supported cameras, however the A3300 IS is not listed. Will CHDK still work and will it maintain the IS if I get the A3300 IS?

Sorry - I could have been more expansive in my answer.  You asked about the the differences between two model numbers that actually refer to the same camera.  There is no A3300 - its an A3300 IS.  But in CHDK, its somewhat arbitrary how cameras are identified. The various suffixes like "IS" or "HS" might or might not be used to name the CHDK port depending on the whim of the developer.  And Canon changes the name in different parts of the world - the IXUS120 is the European version of the SD940 for example.  Exact same camera.

So asking a question here in the forum if you are confused is a smart thing to do.
