It is not the camera that makes the videos look professional. It is you who has to be professional. These are the following tips to make it look good.
Stabilize the Footage:
Always use a tripod to get stable shots if not you can use any sort of method to make the camera stable. if you end-up with a shaky footage you can use stabilization effect in any editing software or try slow down the footage which often makes it look smooth.
Light is the deciding factor which make your video either look good or bad. So, it is very important to know in what light you are capturing the scene. Many photographers believe it as a Golden hour to shoot-the hour right after sunrise or right before sunset where shadows are soften. You can always build your own light using different artificial lights available in market, but be aware of the shadows that are produced by any artificial form of light. In order to exclude the shadows you can use white or reflective elements that bounces the light. If you decide to shoot your scene in low light you should know how to use color correction to add light to the dark shots.
For any scene with low light start the color correction by lifting the highlights, if it is too much contrast try raising the midtones which makes the scene washout. But if you drop the shadows and raise the color saturation you can get your desired shot. You can notice some formation of grain on to the scene but that's what happens when you shoot your video in dark. Also if your white balance was off while shooting you can correct it by boosting up yellow or blue to correct it. If everything got mess up with all the colors you can drop the saturation by making it a black and white scene.
