    A question about the G2

    With the body cap on and a ~30s exposure (NR on or off), how many hot pixels show up with the new G2?

    TIA!

    0 [email protected] 100 ISO with NR ... without NR... it Looks like a starry night sky @ 3000m




    maybe 3-5 @ 400 ISO... with NR but hard to say because of the red noise starting to appear?

    it makes my eyes hurt and attention deficit disorder doesn't help...

    Thanks a bunch, Hudson.

    Now, if you do a "Pixel refresh", these may go (speaking from the G1 experience) but will reappear elsewhere after a while.

    Initially, I was not sure if these starry night sky scene was chroma noise or dead pixels..

    BTW, if you drink a lot of coffee like me, apparently, it leads to short term memory loss.

    Re: A question about the G2

    a crop (definitely not 100%) from a G1 frame exposed at 5s and ISO400 (with NR on).



    These islets of color sprinkles are not uniform chroma noise at all.

    I wonder where these sensors would be classified by some standards (if such a standard is there)?

    Great, creative photos guys, and excellent compositions. What tripod did you use to get this level of sharpness? Did you use a ballhead or just a regular panhead?

    PS. Would these look better with a Canon?

    Re: A question about the G2

    Glad you asked, Joergen!

    Can you reproduce such beauties with your Kodak sensored E1?

    PS: I don't know about Canon but even with a lowest priced Nikon DSLR, I had never seen this.

    PPS: I can't ask of the NEX owners about this as Sony are yet to make a body cap. :-)

    I am trying solve this mystery.

    Mystery because I also have shots that is devoid of these sprinkles as well.
