Was "dancing date/time" really a feature on 1990 camcorders?

Beginning with the TV and breakfast was really weird, like he was intending it to be a time capsule from the start? That, the date/time thing, and this being VERY high quality footage for a 1990 consumer camcorder would make me almost call fake until it got to the high school.

Ha, and holy shit yeah being able to leave school grounds for lunch and grab fast food used to be a thing. That ended right as my class got to high school :(

the camera shake has been stabilized out, which is why you see the black bars creeping in when the camera starts moving alot: the whole image is being moved to cancel out the camera shake and give you a stable image.

you can also see the motion blur from camera shake in the blur around the lights.

anyway, since the DATE AND TIME are a static burn in done by the camera, those words get jostled around by the image stabilization as they weren't effected by the motion of the camera.

Yeah, the dancing date and time is Youtube stabilization. The quality is pretty average for a VHS camcorder, it's just that most VHS footage you see on Youtube hasn't been captured well.

I'm old enough to have seen VHS footage outside of Youtube :(

I'm pretty sure the dancing date/time is just because of software image-stabilization. Probably the original was shaky as shit and unwatchable. You'll notice the date/time also sort of grows and shrinks, for the same reasons.

Looks like I forgot to read the earlier replies explaining the dancing date/time. Woops!
