Who else doesn’t shoot video using their camera? Would it make sense for Sony to have a full frame camera catered to stills only shooters?

Sony could get rid of all the fancy video features and focus the camera purely on photography. I would love to see Sony do this one day.

It wouldn't be cheaper.

It wouldn't have more stills features.

It wouldn't have any better stills quality.

It wouldn't sell well.

You can bet that if there was a profitable market for a stills only camera, all the big players would be selling one.

Perfect reply.

Some people just don't understand what makes a camera cheap or expensive.

If you take the A1 and remove all its video features, it would cost Sony the exact same amount of money to manufacture.

It's the sensor that makes that camera so expensive and so good.

You wouldn't even save money on R&D by removing the video features, since they were pretty much copied/pasted from the A7Siii. So it was essentially free for Sony to add those video specs.

It's like he wants a firmware update that removes the ability to record video or what?
