Consumer review by: dearll (

Great value


Got this camera a little over a year ago. Admittedly, I'm not a power user of this thing, but I am quite happy with it thus far.

Great picture quality, relatively inexpensive, Zoom is positively incredible. Takes regular vhs tape.

Battery doesn't hold a charge very well, Camera is very bulky.

Consumer review by: olddave54 (

Worked, sort of until it quit!


My parents tried and priced several camcorders before deciding on the RCA CC4252 about three years ago. The price was right at the time and it seemed to be easy to use.

Low cost. Easy to use.

Battery packs won't hold a charge. Lots of problems. Poor service.

Product Specifications

When your imagination outgrows the compact camera it's time to swap it for Thomson CC4252 full-size camcorder. Full-size is the original VHS camcorder format - and remains popular with videographers who want full VHS compatibility along with a list of versatile performance features. Point-and-shoot AutoShot capability takes the guesswork out of your video recordings. The ColorView color viewfinder delivers an accurate picture of what the camera lens sees. There is even a 72x digital zoom so you can get as close as you want to the action.
