5DII 1.6 Firmware White Dots; direct sunlight and snow or sensor/firmware issue?
Feb 1, 2009

Are these white dots are due to the direct sunlight and the snow or a 5DII sensor/firmware issue? With direct sunlight and reflective snow would any digital sensor behave in this manor?

Anyone have white dots with firmware 1.6 that were corrected with firmware 1.7?

I have been holding out on the firmware 1.7 update as I have had no issues - until today with white dots.
