Default Oh no whats wrong with my CAM ! :(

Took quite a few night shots last night, and noticed that in every shot there was what looked like a single pixel, always in exactly the same spot, kinda washed out.

Take a look here, the error is to the right hand site (easier to see against complete black)

Maybe im overreacting but what the hell, i've only had it 2 weeks, surely it should be doing that. I've tried cleaning the lens, no joy.

Any clues ?

Looks like a hot pixel which is quite common. If it's still quite new they might exchange it. Personally I don't think it's worth the bother.

I thought the candle pic wasn't bad. Don't forget you've bought a 100 ASA cam, so these sort of shots, if you like them, are going to mean long exposure times and show up noise and pixels. Faster lens and ccd helps. Or restrict yourself to good light.

Thanks for the input guyz, I thought maybe i'd done something wrong hehe. It's not a huge bother, you can't even see it on day pics. I'll see if they will exchange it.

Hi,

You could always use the clone tool from PS to mask it.

Greetings,
Frank

Is this a common occurence? My camera also got a "bad" pixel but I noticed a couple of months after I got it. It is a blue pixel that only shows in dark backgrounds and with the digital zoom close to its limit. In pictures using no zoom or just optical zoom the pixel won't show even in dark pictures.
