White Orbs, yes, but Black Holes are worse?
Nov 6, 2012

Hi all. I'm the guy who created the DeOrbIt tool to fix the infamous "white orbs" in X10 images. I've had a research paper on that accepted, so I finally purchased a used X10 to test the orb issues myself and demo live at the Electronic Imaging conference. I found it very easy to get white orbs, but the oddly-structured black holes are much more disturbing!

How often have others seen this sort of thing? Does the new sensor fix this?

A nice shadow... but what happened to the bright stuff?
