Canon ion 251 review, part 1 (the contents)

The Canon Ion 251 was the European PAL version of the Canon Ion 250. It was launched in 1988, and had a Hi-band 1/2 inch CCD with 200K pixels. The Ion series was also called Q-PIC in Japan, and XAPSHOT in the US.

This was not marketed as a "digital camera", but rather as a "still video camera", which makes more sense, since it is built around a video camera CCD.

In the first part of the review, let's take a look at what's in the package. The camera came with a practical carrying case.


On the front side, there is a quick opening room for the camera itself, shown here inside a protective textile case:


The reverse side of the carrying case has a zipped flap covering accessories, mainly the charger and some cables.


All the contents laid out: The camera inside the protective case, a rechargeable lead acid battery, TV signal converter, battery charger, with an attached battery eliminator.
