Re: Hot pixel mapping with CP990 - success anyone?

Philippe - did you ever get around to trying the pixel remapping again? There's a little newer version of cpixmap now. I'd like to get rid of
a couple of hot pixels on my 990 without sending it for repair.
Did anyone ever get cpixmap to work on a 990 over the serial cable?

It was not a total success, as some others have reported for the
4500 or the 5700: reading the hot pixels did not work, and
remapping them timed out. It does appear though that some hot
pixels have been reduced in intensity and that a much slower
shutter speed is needed to trigger them (perhaps 1/4s instead of
1/60s previously), but they they are still there. I'll try again

If there's anyone out there who has a 990 and tried getting/fixing
their hot pixels, tell me about it...

Good luck!
