As a rule, the answer is yes but there are exceptions.
For example, Panasonic makes a consumer level 3 chip camera while the Red One is a one chipper. Whcih one do you think will take better looking video?
you can also get into the CMOS vs. CCD quagmire. And would you rather have a 1/2 inch single chip or a 1/5 inch three chip model?
Bottom line is to research the cameras in question and do some objective pro/con comparison and decide which features you need/want limited by your budget.
