X-T1 sensor hot pixels

So i got my X-T1 today and started looking for dust on the sensor (like others have found) instead i found this:
They are about 3px vertically (or horiz. if you shoot portrait ) visible only on 100% view and of course in the same spot on every photo.

Does anyone have experience with warranty/repair outside of the US? (just came back from usa where i got the camera and am in europe now). Overall i'm thinking screw this (not give new camera away for god knows how long) but then again is a bit annoying

after reviewing the photos again i have trained my eye to see it even withought zoom on a 1920x1200 monitor.

for size comparison here is a full frame and below a 100% crop.

Re: X-T1 sensor hot pixels

A few hot pixels is considered normal. Most Raw processors mask them out automatically.

thanks for the info but i have a question - most mask them out but lightroom doesnt? I googled and there is software to remove hop pixels so thanks for the tip.

Also i read about taking a black shot then substracting hot pixels but in my case they don't show up on black shots at all.

So maybe these are not hot pixels ? Maybe its something on the sensor that is messing up the light coming in? Any ideas?

Thanks!

Definitely faulty I'd say. Send it back for an exchange as soon as you can.

Re: X-T1 sensor hot pixels

The camera needs a pixel remapping that only Fuji does

If you did not buy an international warranty you might have to pay for the service

In France the cameras are always sold with an international warranty for official dealers grey marketexists however through 2 fims operating in one country of EU

Re: X-T1 sensor hot pixels

I had the EXACT same problem with my X-E2. I tried everything and eventually sent it back to Fuji. They hooked it up to a computer and re-mapped the pixels and fixed it. It took about 7-10 days in shop to get it done. Best of luck to you. It's very frustrating and this should not happen with a new camera Fuji needs to add a remapping function so users can do it themselves or offer software to download to do it.
