I have my first hot pixels in years. The last ones were with the 3 MP and 5 MP cameras that I had.
I have not seen anything regarding this in the Sigma manual. I have just 2 of these bright white pixels. These are beside each other and show clearly if that part has any sky portion. Does anyone know their replacement policy? I bought the camera 3 days ago, and I guess I may be able to return it.
In the past, each camera had a pixel mapping that came with it in the cameras memory. That is, it was very usual to have hot or dead pixels. In fact I had a russian software that evaluated the CCD and remap the problems. It was then uploaded to the camera.
Is it still the case, or do they now have better quality production eliminating problems all together?
Is the DP-1 a purely amateur camera, or can it be considered semi PRO in this regard? I know that I have paid twice the average camera price.
