DSLR/Mirrorless cameras vs Camcorder footage - Matching both

Hi,

Sorry to bother you...

I used to be UAUed by the videos of some of the camcorders, that I saw on Youtube. The IQ looked superb. Now I find them really bad.

I have some old footage shot on my Canon HV30. I want to mix it  with some of my newer footage, recorded on my NX30. They are both in 1080p, but the old footage (the HV30 one) looks blurry/not sharp... in fact it doesn't look 1080p, when comparing to the NX30... I didn't use a DOF adapter.... I started watching some youtube videos to see the differences...

So here is my question:

I used to love this video (bellow). I thought the main featured that allow for DSLR/mirorrless cameras to have better quality was DOF. But now, I found this old footage, blurry, and not sharp enough, although a DOF adapter was used. It is in Full HD, so why does the quality seem worst? Does it has to do with the old camcorders quality (HV 30, and such)? Or the way Youtube compressed video in the past?

Here is the video:

And another:

Hope you understood my concerns...

Thanks
