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.

The video features are effectively “free” - they have been developed for other cameras. So you don’t get a cheaper “stills-only” camera. In fact, it would cost more, because they would have to write a separate manual, make a box, give it a number, get the necessary approvals and licenses, and so forth. And those extra costs would be amortised over a small number of people who want this model.

Sorry, it just ain’t gonna happen.

Just pretend your camera has no video features. Redefine the movie button to something, like “magnify view”.
