    problem with the D70...

    well after just 2 weeks of using the camera i noticed i was getting some hot pixels. just sent the body back to nikon hoping they will replace it and not just try to fix it


    has anyone else experienced problems with the D70?
    i also had a dead pixel on my nikon 4500 when i first bought it.... starting to wonder if it wasnt just bad luck and nikon is getting slack with quality control?

    Hello Soren,

    I didnt noticed hot pixels on my D70. Can you post at least one example of what it actually look like? So far my only problem is with dust but it apply to any DSLR (other than the Olumpus E1) so it doenst really count as an issue...

    Regards

    Seb

    I haven't experienced any so far, but I can tell you there are two scenarios that commonly produce hot pixels in digital SLRs:

    1) If you've had the camera on for a long time and it gets hot. This could be caused by close proximity of the sensor and a hot battery, or just high exterior temperatures (hot summer day, shooting in a factory, etc.).

    2) If you're shooting very long exposure times in dim light (particularly indoor light).

    Hot pixels are on all sensors, they are just hidden. Eventually, new ones will develop. There is nothing that we can do to avoid it, our only recourse is to send it in for remapping to hide the pixel. I learned to use the clone tool, several seconds and I don;t have to send the camera in.

    Indeed. I have cloned many a rogue red or blue pixel in my day... no fun when there's dozens of them spread randomly around a large file but it's part of the deal until the sensor technology matures more.

    so far no problems even with extended use....in hot wetaher or otherwise...

    better luck with the next one.
