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.

Aren't the first two a7 cameras stills only?

I've never seen a video function on either.

They have at 1080, DSLRs also had video functions.

Most of the Sony DSLRs were stills-only. I think the A560 and A580 were the only ones that offered movie recording.
