    Hot Pixel (or not?)

    I recently got a little point and shoot to carry along with my digital SLR
    it is a Canon SD870IS
    I have used Irfanview to quickly examine shots on my computer in the past with no particular issues.
    However- every picture I take with this camera shows a hot pixel in the same spot.
    The odd thing is, that no other software shows a hot pixel
    Windows viewer
    Nikon photo software
    Canon Photo software

    none show a hot pixel-- only Irfanview
    but Irfanview sees it on two different computers

    so-- do I have a hot pixel or not?
    anybody ever see this?

    Re: Hot Pixel (or not?)

    That is weird. To further test, I would check and image from another camera to see if Irfanview still shows a hot pixel. If it does, then it's a software glitch. If it doesn't then you have a hot pixel that only Irfanview can see

    If you're worried about a hot pixel - don't. It's not a big deal. Usually they end up being invisible in photos. And if they do show up in the sky or something, it's easy enough to clone them out.
