No major still camera makers make POV cameras. Why?

Re: Sony makes them, but are POVs either profitable or safe?

I think of them as coming to the party early. I considered a Go Pro a cheap version of a tough camera. I remember when they first came out and they were sold at Costco. That's exactly what they were. Low cost alternatives to the tough cameras like the Sony TX5. What people use a Go Pro for, I use my TX5.  Now the roles have reversed.  For cheaper than the price of a Go Pro HD, I can get a TX20 which is far more camera than the Go Pro.
