comment Smartphone vs camcorder
Yes. The rest of my post goes over quite a few reasons. Not the least of which is optics. Don't use a phone, just don't. It isn't suited to the task at all.

comment Smartphone vs camcorder
.3846 inches diagonally instead of .5, and actually, it sounds like the article I read may have been wrong. Other sources are saying it is only a 1/3 inch sensor, which means it's only .3333 inches diagonally. This chart gives length and width measurements. As you can see, the area of a 1/2 inch sensor is 30.72 square mm. Comparatively, a 1/3 inch sensor only is 17.28 square centimeters, so it is almost half the size.

comment Smartphone vs camcorder
Yeah, certainly worth mentioning, it just wouldn't be a deciding factor for me personally, just because neither would produce an acceptable result for my tastes, but I agree it is still worth pointing out.

Ehh, in either case you really want to do your audio recording separately for best results, so I wouldn't really define the audio as a significant drawback, though you are right that the built in audio on a camera will be better. It's just a bit like saying a car that lets you go 5 miles an hour is better than having to crawl everywhere, neither really gets the job done well.

comment Detect GoPro camera model from MP4
It is possible that exiftool couldn't read the particular tag maybe, but probably unlikely. I believe EXIFtool is usually pretty complete. Sometimes it outputs a code that may not be human readable, but I don't see any such values.

Yes, I use the free version. I'll try to post a screenshot and more details tonight when I'm actually home.

comment Software advice to create animated sketches
While After Effects is likely a good option for his needs, could you expand the answer a bit more to explain how and/or why After Effects is an ideal choice. That would make it much more informative.

comment Youtube convert my video on bad quality
Welcome to the Video Production Stack Exchange. Please be aware that answers aren't the right place for venting about your frustration with a product in unproductive ways. I think you had some worthwhile things to say, so I edited your answer to remove the parts that weren't relevant to the question at hand and were excessive.

comment Are adapters that allowing lens change on cheap camcorders worth it?
I altered your question pretty significantly. Product recommendations and shopping for you are explicitly off-topic for this site, however there was other important related to the products you are looking for that I thought were worth communicating enough to edit the question a bit so it could still be touched on without directly closing the question.

comment Does My Business Model Break Youtube API TOS?
Did you have a particular part of the agreement that worried you? I didn't see anything in my brief scan of it and it seems to be consistent with the plain english (aka, probably not legally defensible) portion at the start that explained what they were trying to accomplish.
