A1 Firmware Survey
I'm on 2.01 with no problems
I'm on 2.01 and have had minor issues (e.g. battery drain)
I'm on 2.01 and have had major issues (WiFi/BT failure)
I'm still on 1.3x
I'm just curious

OK so with all of the chatter about the 2.0 and 2.01 firmware I thought it would be useful for people browsing here to get a real sense of how many folks out there have had any issues.

Let's see what we can discover from this. FWIW, I have two A1's, both updated and I haven't noticed any issues at all. Even with the battery I am still seeing the same results as I had with 1.32.

Still on 1.32 here. Everything working as it should and I'm going to be away for five of the next eight weeks for which my a1 is crucial.

If I'm honest there's not a lot of benefit to me in 2.0/2.01 as I shoot very little video, am in no rush to send pictures ooc anywhere and I'm not a streamer.

Actually still on 2.0, which I updated to on first day of release. Hasnít given me any issues of the above so didnít bother with 2.01 especially since I have to update via computer again.

I like the faster memory card reformat, updated video interface, and focus breathing compensation. Those are something I use pretty regularly.

Can you expand your 1.3x option to ...

"I'm still on 1.3x because I don't see any benefit to updating"
(and)
"I'm still on 1.3x because I'm afraid to mess with things"

Unfortunately you can't edit the polls once they are live.

I really love the new interface on v2. Same with the Creators app. It feels like what Sony should have done 10+ years ago. Very intuitive, IMHO.

I think it's more about how Sony handles the issue, rather than the issue itself.
Asking the owner to pay for the repair of a malfunction caused by FW update is disingenuous at best...

Agreed but at the moment we know very little about what's actually going on so it's a ton of speculation at best. Just your statement alone assumes a) that the update can and does cause a malfunction and b) if that this is the case Sony would make someone pay. We don't know either of those to be true.

Ekhm, I'm not making this up.
Both of these points were already reported in the other thread...

I do think Sony will come up with an official revised response eventually, but it is what it is for now .

Still on 1.32, and seriously considering moving systems.

I will wait until some sort of resolution happens.... or doesn't. But the way it stands is completely unacceptable and no Sony user, regardless of whether they have the issue or not, should stand for it.

I shoot pro soccer and on 1.32 for the obvious reasons. Until a valid update above 2.01 has been vetted by a number of photogs I pay attention to here on FM version 1.32 will remain on both A1s.

I'm on 1.32. I was traveling when 2.0 was released and then forgot about 2.0 and 2.01 until I saw this thread.

On 1.32 and am waiting to hear back from Sony Pro support UK as to cover if motherboard needs replacing before considering the update.

I upgraded to 2.0 and then 2.01. I uploaded photos from A1 to IPhone using the Creator App, Bluetooth/WIFI without problems. I got the A1 very soon after release date. My vote has been recorded.

The survey results are a very strong indication that there is no problem and that Sony's responses have been accurate and appropriate.

OK, I was very brave. I just updated the new to me A1 from FW 1.31 to 2.01. This body was purchased new by the previous owner in March 2022, presumably it was manufactured in 2021 or early 2022.


I have never used the wifi features in any of my cameras, this is the first time ever for me to try. It was able to detect the wifi networks, I entered the password, and got this screen. Hope it means it's working. I have another A1 that I bought new few months ago. I also just updated it from 2.0 to 2.01. I will try the wifi thingy on that one tomorrow to see if it works.

That is when I bought mine. S/N begins in 338 so was wondering where this one is. I don't believe it has been established S/N has a thing to do with the problems, however.

The SN of the used A1 I talked about starts with 337.
