photo centric Sony cameras have an "R" in their name

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.

great summary.

Video is predominately a software question and somehow related to some HW topics like processing power and read out speed but that helps for photography as well.

While I am personally not really using the video functions I am all in for more functionality to give the users the maximum freedom of choice.

Nobody forces you to use features you don't like/need.

The new A7 IV is a boring update for photography and a really nice upgrade in video features. In case you don't like it get an A7R IV which is undoubtedly the better photography tool

Younger generations are more video centric.

We do have mostly photography centered cameras - they have an "R" in their name.
