Re: No it is a general digital camera problem

My observation was made too soon. I rechecked the 8s shoot I made with the lens cap and indeed there were some white hotpixels. I just downloaded the Russian program and made a test with my brand new (3 weeks) CP5400. DAMN!!! 81 bad pixels. Ok, let's try to click on the remap button. 14 seconds after, the message "Your CCD was successfully remapped". I took a couple of pictures and everything seems to be just fine. Dave, I think this answers your question. But now a question comes to mind, how often these hotpixel (new ones) will appear on the CCD? How much time a camera has until the 512 bad pixels table will fill up?
