Re: Just remapped 5700's CCD.....

this forum is absolutely great. i received a used (ebay) cp5000 today and was
checking it out. noticed some hot pixels so i took a shot in a dark room and
a review of the picture showed about fifty hot pixels. i thought i might
have purchased a garbage camera which does occasionally happen. so i

did a search of "hot pixels" on this forum and found the link to the remapping program. ran it, took the same dark room shot and now see only four hot pixels way off in opposite corners. great news.

does anyone know if these hot pixels develop gradually or are they a result
of abuse. do they increase with age/use? is there a ballpark figure on how

long a ccd will last before it is crippled with numerous colored dots throughout your pictures.
thanks
