"New D7K no hot pixels I think"


Marengo, US
          

Well I picked up my D7000 and was playin around with it this am.Of course I had to Check for Hot Pixels. I shot about 10-12 seconds in movie and playedback on the camera monitor. A very dark night no stars. Is this ok or should I be hooded up to my computer monitor or a tv? As an old guy trying to get up to speed in digital this is like Elmer Fudd gets a Ferrari. thanx jim

Well, if after doing this you didn't notice anything amiss, would it matter if some other methodology revealed something? I guess what I'm saying is, in all likelihood, you've got a wonderful camera.

We should all stop overly-looking for hot pixels and enjoy capturing great images.

Though I agree that the hot pixel "issue" has been completely blown out of proportion, I doubt you would see much on the camera LCD if it was there.

Normal playback on a computer monitor is fine. I have shot video at High ISOs in 1080p and no problems.

I also understand (from spending time here)that the hot pixel thing is overblown.That being said, my local shop has a limited return policy so I wanted to see if it was ok. I understand that if you have hot pixels they can be corrected down the road with nikon's software. I don't buy hardware that often and don't want to have to find somwhere to get the problem fixed so it was kinda important to me. This morning I hooked the body up to a 1080 19" flatscreen and it was perfactly black for a 15 min video so I'm good. The upside to all this is its gettin Digital creten to learn how to do things. As I have said on a few posts I'm an older guy tring to get up to speed on digital. Anyway thanks for the response. This forum is a Godsend for my purpose. Thanx jim
