Not really it is more to do with the impedances of the camera output and the headphone. The camera is designed to feed an amplifier so cannot drive headphones directly, you need an amp between the camera and the headphones to make them work properly.
having said that you can get camcorders with headphone outputs, my Canon HV20 has one.
