Dimage Z3 Compensate for Dead, Hot, or Stuck Pixels?

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by William Boehnke, Aug 5, 2004.

  1. I'm considering buying a Konica Minolta Dimage Z3. Does it have any
    method for compensating for dead, hot, or stuck pixels? If so, how
    well does it work.

    Thanks in advance,

    Minolta has owners manuals available for download on their site.

  5. Thanks for the link. I received the following reply (pasted below)
    from KM confirming the lack of pixel mapping in the Z3. This may
    cause me to drop the Z3 from consideration. Anybody care to weigh in
    on the necessity of pixel mapping?

    What are the comparable models that do have pixel mapping?

    Thanks again,

    Dear Customer,
    In response to the question that you have submitted...
    Question is : Does the Z3 have a pixel mapping feature? If not, how is
    it recommended to compensate for inevitable dead/hot/stuck pixels?

    Answer is : The Dimage Z3 does not have a pixel mapping feature.

  6. When they say it doesn't have pixel mapping do they mean for the end user or
    not at all, even for their service people?
    The only cams I know of that have end-user pixel mapping as a feature are
    the Olympus C7xx series and possibly other Olympus cams...
    There is conjecture that the Minolta A1/A2 models have an auto update pixel
    mapping routine once per month.
    I have to agree that it is an important feature - one of the reasons that I
    bought my Oly C770. OTOH now that I have seen no need to use it so far I
    think I might be persuaded to exchange the pixel mapping feature of the 770
    for the image stabiliser of the Z3 - much more useful IMHO...
    Sigh - I don't think there will ever be a perfect camera for me - there's
    always plusses & minuses... :)
