Has sense to buy a camcorder?

Hello guys. I have 3 children (last one has 9 months), and my only camera it's an Olympus XZ-1, not great for video, and my mobile phone (Samsung Galaxy S3). I'm thinking of buying some device to film my kids. Last year, I used a couple of times a CanonT4i-18-135 STM combo: the IQ was good, but the camera got very hot, zooming was painful and trepidation was evident, so i sold the camera. Now i'm not sure if there is a good idea to buy a camcorder, even if the IQ it not will be soo good (especially in low light), but ergonomy sure will be far better. I'm in budget (about 300 €), so i'm thinking in something like this (lighter and unexpensive):

C&C are welcome

Thanks

Best regards

Olympus XZ-1
