As is there's not enough to worry about when deciding on which camera to purchase, now someones discovered 'hot pixels'.

JimC provides a lot of useful information and puts it into perspective but it seems that the Sony 8MP 2/3" CCD (as used in the Konica-Minolta A2, A200; Olympus C-8080WZ; Nikon CP 8800; Sony DSC-F828; Canon Pro 1) suffers from this.

I'm not going to repeat his comments so jump to the location using this link:


I did some checks on my Fuji S602which reported13 hot pixels of varying luminance from 72 to 195 predominately at 1600 on the X scale.

Am I worried - in a word no. Under normal conditions, I'll never see it.

I didn't even know about purple fringing until I started reading these forums and guess what, my Fuji also suffers from thatjust like many others, it was just that I never focused that intently on suspect areas of contrastin the image to notice them.
