Does not compute

I seriously doubt his story is correct.

1. He claims that whole rows of pixels can be knocked out. Do you think that such a conspicuous defect would not have been discussed to death by the pixel peepers on dpreview?

2. He did not show any photographic examples, whereas he showed examples for the CA-like light scattering. I am sure he travels in sufficient amounts to have observed the pixels dying during the flight if it were a common problem.

I think he only uses the story to spice up his presentation.

P.S. I am definitely going to map out pixels before my trip to Ecuador, and see how many new ones will appear after the trip. I think between the 8000 miles round trip flight, plus 2 weeks at 9000 ft elevation it will make a decent test of this theory.
