    Sony A7RIV as a video camera

    I just read that the agreement between AP and Sony will result in most of their photographers getting a pair of A9II bodies and the videographers getting a pair of A7RIV bodies. Being video challenged, I would have expected the A7SIII bodies to be for video. Comments from the video cognoscenti?
