A1 - Built in ND?

Hi

As the title says, does the sony A1 have built in ND filters. If not how does it perform in bright sunlight?

I'm shooting some climbing footage in Greece during summer and the size/weight of this camera makes it the ideal solution. However I'm a bit worried about the sunlight. I'm wondering whether I'll have to make some sort of filter tray for ND's and polas etc.

Anybody have any experience of this cam in similar shooting situations?

Thanks

Built in performs very well.
Half of these are A1's.

thanks.
There doesn't seem to be any mention of it in the manual that I downloaded.

Nice canyon shoot!
