    Unless there is a certain number or clump of bad pixels, it may not even qualify as a warranty issue.

    I had a couple of dead pixels and when researching I remember seeing something on the Canon web site to the effect "Some dead pixels are expected".

    That doesnt seem like a burned pixel...

    Mine were much much brighter....
    My dead pixels were brighter as well A650 dead/stuck pixel: http://www.dcresource.com/forums/sho...ighlight=pixel

    I did some tests and when you look at the output of a black image taken with the lens cap on there is a lot of variations - I suppose with 15million pixels ( in my case ) not everyone is going to be exactly the same.

    Tbh, that looks like such a huge crop, that the full print would not even show this.

    Unless its a particularly special case where that specific pixel might stand out, even at 8x10 you probably wouldn't notice it.

    I've had a camera with a dead pixel, that was very bright and was showing up in all the photos, i had made a small photoshop batch to deal with that specific pixel across all the images, was a pretty quick thing, newer canon cameras have somethind called dust and something, that can be automatically applied to all images... don't remember much more about that feature.


    Hot pixels may also come and go. They usually exhibit more after a certain iso, or after a number of consecutive shots heat it up and its not cooling down properly, it'll still cool down on its own after a while though.

    Csae, it's true.. that's '100% crop?'.. I didn't enlarge. And as such, it's Multiple pixels.
