getting rid of dead pixels on Nikon D600
5 months ago
I just got rid of a modestly irritating dead pixel in the smack centerof of my D600 sensor!
it was modestly irritating because I would see it every time I zoomed to the max to check focus.
It was really dead, even visible at ISO 100.
What I did, is 2 things:
1.-take a dust reference photo
2.-trigger an automatic sensor dust cleaning
SLRs are known to be able to map dead pixels , but the functionallity is often hidden. ( select manual sensor clean for longer than 30 seconds on canon SLRs...)
I don't know what did it, but the fact is that it is GONE!!! ( I admit, it might have been a quantum coincidence, who knows).
If you have a dead pixel, can you reproduce what I did and let us know if it worked for you?
I will also re-post if it comes back ( zombie pixel then )
