The RCA CC-6263 camcorder uses VHS-C tapes, which are simply smaller VHS tapes. You can play your tapes in any VCR with the included cassette adapter. This feature also allows the manufacturer to make a compact, affordable camcorder--it weighs only 1.6 pounds and is quite portable. RCA designed this model with convenience in mind. It has a built-in AutoShot feature that automatically focuses and adjusts to available light. The LCD color monitor lets you see exactly what you're taping. The CC-6263 includes the Steady Pix feature, which corrects slight shaking of images--especially handy for zooming in on a distant subject, recording an approaching small subject, recording while walking, or recording from a moving vehicle. Your viewers will appreciate this feature during playback because it will make your recording easier to watch.
The CC-6263 has a fade-in and -out option that adds a professional touch to your recordings. For artistic flexibility, RCA includes the wide-format 16:9 mode. You can also record in a special animation mode that creates the illusion of movement for an otherwise stationary scene when you shoot a series of slightly different poses. The time-lapse recording mode shows subtle changes when focused on an object (such as plant growth or cloud formations). You do this by programming the CC-6263 to record at preset time intervals.
The playback options include position on the tape, visual search, stop-action pause, time counter, tracking, and time base corrector. The CC-6263 includes a rechargeable battery, AC adapter and charger, shoulder strap, cassette adapter, cassette adapter battery, and a clock cell.
