I thought that was a good video, though I will stick with my A7Riv for now. It would be so easy for Sony to make a landscape photographer's dream camera based on the A7Riv without much, if any, added production expense. Just change base ISO to 50, allow 16-bit raw files, add focus bracketing with a way to combine focus and exposure bracketing, allow screen to tilt in portrait format like the Panasonic S1, add a timer to bulb shutter mode, allow longer shutter speeds that act like hybrid bulb in that they can be cancelled with a press of the shutter before terminating at the set time, allow composite view in bulb mode or long shutter speeds, and create pixel shift raw file in-camera. I assume this dream camera would have the higher resolution LCD that is on the new A7Riv.

Sony could absolutely dominate the full-frame landscape photography market with this common sense model. Unfortunately, I highly doubt they will. Instead, I anticipate that the Sony A7Rv will include few, if any, of these firmware and cheap hardware changes. Instead, we'll get something like autofocus in -.1 seconds. It's so fast that it focuses in the past. Lol.

Very good summary.
