Sony has released firmware version 1.10 for the A1. The firmware appears to fix the reported IBIS issues.

Benefits and Improvements​

  • Improves overall AF performance and stability
  • Improves operability when using the Remote Camera Tool app
    Note: Make sure you have updated the Remote Camera Tool app to the most recent version
  • Improves eye sensor detection performance with strong light sources, such as sunlight
  • Improves operational stability when using the Imaging Edge Mobile apps
  • Improves operational stability when using the SEL100400GM, SEL200600G, or SEL600F40GM lens
  • Improves the overall stability of the camera

Firmware Download​

You can download the latest firmware from your local Sony support site. The below links will take you to the correct page to download the firmware. Make sure that you download the correct firmware for your computer (Windows or Mac).
Important note: Make sure that you read the install instructions, especially for Mac. You will need the latest Sony Camera Driver as well for a successful install on MacOS 10.14, 10.15, 11. Also note that the Sony Camera Driver is not currently supporting the Apple M1 chips.

I can confirm the "eye sensor detection performance with strong light sources" issue is completly solved now.
No matter how hard I tried I could not get the viewfinder to go blind with the sun as it would happen easily before this upgrade. Will make for a great A1 usability improvement on my morning west coast surf shoots.

I had no trouble with installing the firmware update, but I had Adobe Bridge misbehave afterwards. I'd recommend that Mac users restart their Mac after running the update. Once restarted, Adobe Bridge worked as normal again. I think that Sony driver is the issue.
