Re: Canon G3 - 1 dead pixel or a group?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by James Carpenter, Jul 10, 2003.

  1. Thanx, Marko. That's just what I was wary of with simply exchanging
    the camera at the point of purchase.

    I used the "DeadPixelTest.exe" program to discover that the pixel set
    isn't completely hot. (Taking RAW pics in darkroom.) At ISO 50, it
    only appears at the 1 sec. exposure, and even then it is only gray.
    It goes away again after the 1.3 sec noise filter engagement. At ISO
    100, it shows up all the time. I'm going to take a try a few more
    DeadPixelTest shots this afternoon to nail down a baseline before
    sending it off to Canon.

    Out of curiosity, what was Canon's turnaround time for this repair?

    Thanx,
    James Carpenter
    Just west of Guthrie, KY
