Dead pixel on 5D mark II?
Oct 16, 2009

Just a quick question as i've never had a dead pixel issue, but think I have one now. I was going through photos I shot on our vacation and noticed a white fleck in one of them. I use Aperture for retouching. I used the loupe to hover over it and it's a perfectly square pixel. What's most disturbing is, since I can leave the loupe in the exact spot, but arrow through my photos, I notice the fleck/speck always remained...that is, in each photo, in the exact same spot, there's a tiny spot of white. What is this? Is this a dead pixel? I've owned a number of digital cams and never had this issue...then suddenely I drop $3.5K on one and get it...I think. Does this sound like a dead pixel to anyone who's dealt with this before? Not sure what I should do. I'm guessing this is a Canon service issue? Thanks for the help.
