Hi all. I am new to the forum and new to Olympus. I am REALLY impressed with how sharp the E-510 pictures are - WOW!

There is one thing about my new camera that is bothering me. There is ONE red pixel, and ONE white pixel that are showing up in every exposure. Even at ISO 100 and about 1/40 sec. shutter they are still there! :?

I read about the "Pixel Mapping" function and am willing to try it. BUT, should there be burned out pixel problems in a brand new camera and if I map them out does it just cover up some kind of problem with a new sensor?

Anyway I hope someone might now more on the subject and what is the best course of action to take. :idea:

Don't be concerned. This is not at all uncommon with a new sensor. I dare say it might be the rule rather than the exception...but most people don't notice it right away. I've mapped out a few bad pixels with my 510 over the last year.

Use the pixel mapping function. It just takes a minute. It should fix things just fine. Run it again if it doesn't get both bad pixels the first time.
