Help! I did some test shots of my 1D2 and found some hot pixels
Feb 4, 2009

[Note: 2 large files included]

I recently did a couple of test shots to check for dust and pixels.

As I have never done any testing or cleaning of my camera I would be grateful if you can have a look at them and see if there is something wrong or dirty with the sensor, or if it is normal.

Thanks

(1) Shot a "pure black" background by putting the lens cap on.
There seems to be a tiny white spot and red spot near the bottom left side.

Also a blue spot near the middle-top. Do they suggest hot pixels in sensor? When I shoot real pictures none of these pixels seems problematic.

(2) Shot a "pure white" background by pointing towards a wall.

It looks like my sensor is clean because I do not see any "grey" spot. Do you agree?
