I have the same issue. I think this is because your cv_bridge is not up to date.
You can download vision_opencv (1.11.11 version) and compile it from the source. You might also need compile common_msgs from source since the image_pipeline package called sensor_msgs/point_cloud2_iterator.h which is not exist in ros-hydro-sensor-msgs/include. After add those two package in catkin src folder and compile them against image_pipeline. I am able to compile this package. Hope this helps.
