I have seen videos shot on consumer camera’s with no budget that look like they came out of a high dollar production house. It means that the user found a way to get the most out of the camera.
The advantage to a prosumer camera is that, generaly speaking,you get more manual control over the camera which can mean less tweaking in post if you can get the shot you want.
A lot of other factors go into a more professionallook, a good camera can help you over come some dificult situations with the ability to make manual adjustments but, that alone does not keep video form looking like home movies. From the way you framed your question I think you need to decide what you want to achive and then decide if a prosumer camera makes sense for you.
