2nd body for video, A7C or camcorder?

I currently own a Sony A1 with a bunch of primes and zooms. I'm looking to purchase a 2nd body specifically for video. Subject matter will be my newborn baby.

The A7C is a natrual choice as it would produce great quality videos and it would free up my A1 for still use only. So I was settled on purchasing one, but the practicality of a camcorder has me intrigued. For one, it would be easier for my wife to use. I'd imagine it would be more accessible than a A7C with a 20/1.8 and Rode mic on the hotshoe.

My question is to those that have shot with a recent 4K camcorder. Is the video quality noticeably better than a smartphone?
