This is a very silly question but I honestly don't know the answer. Do camcorders produce better video quality than P&S cameras? I have some videos up on Flickr and Photobucket but the quality is awful and I thought maybe a camcorder would do a better job.

Thank you.

Sooner or later P&S cameras will be able to produce HD videos. Till then, no.

The Canon SX1 which is basically a point and shoot does shoot HD video now. Plus you can Zoom with the 560mm lens in video also. ttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfHwb2cECcI

Be sure to click on the HD to see. Not too shabby for a point and shoot.
