So, I've got a nice new shiny E1. Not much to compare it to, I never owned a video camera before, but I like the results and I'm very happy with the form factor.

Problem: there's a dead pixel. On the CCD. Just to the lower left of the area. It's pretty bad - visible even in reasonably bright scenes.

I *really* don't want to send the damn thing back, I bought it because I need it for upcoming events. On the other hand, particularly with image stabilization turned on, it's going to get annoying, fast.

Any word on firmware? Is there any way to kick the camera into a diagnostic mode to tell it that it's got a problem?

It can't be that hard...

The only way to 'fix' a dead pixel is if the Sanyo had firmware to map it out and there is unlikely to be an update to do this so I would just bite the bullet and exchange it.
