I am not experiencing EVF blackout. So settings and technique must play some role. I have used the camera in the bright Australian sunlight.

When you say technique, can you please elaborate on what you mean? Can you also please elaborate on what settings you're using that are helping you to not experience EVF blackout?

EVF malfunction with Sony Alphas is and has historically been related to software/hardware issues which in this case, appears to only be effecting some A1s.  Also, Sony Professional Services acknowledged this issue when I spoke tot hem last week.

Perhaps it's not how you intended it to be, but It's an extremely bold claim to tell someone their EVF isn't turning on in direct sunlight because of their technique as a photographer, so please back your statement up.

Basically this is like telling someone who has a corrupt memory card that they just need to "be better" in order for it to work.  How, exactly, would you propose doing this?
