I am looking for a mid-range camcorder which can shoot at least somewhat better videos than a phone (like Samsung S6).
While searching for camcorders, I came across the Panasonic HC-V777 and Sony HDR-CX625. The price for both of them is nearly the same but then I found the difference lies in the sensor size. The Panasonic camcorder has a sensor size of
1/2.3", while the Sony's has a sensor size of
1/5.8". Both the camcorders are for Full HD video recording.
Then I found that a more expensive Sony's camcorder with 4k resolution also has a sensor size of 1/2.3 inches.
And, finally, I checked that Samsung S6 has a sensor size of 1/2.6 inches.
Will a 1/2.3 inches sensor provide better video quality? Do I need to consider any other parameters?
