I'm on my 2nd D3000 now (returned the first one) and I've found hot pixels in both.
When the picture is bright and there is ample lighting there isn't much of a problem. However when I shoot in low light and there's dark colors I always get hot pixels in the same place. I'm talking about viewing the image on a computer monitor (it's not the monitor). And I'm not even a pixel peeper or anything, it's quite noticeable without zooming into the picture at all.
I just find it disappointing that both cameras I obtained had this problem. I've seen this mentioned in reviews as well. Starting to wonder whether I should get another camera, I like the D3000 but I don't think I can bare knowing it has this defect. Thoughts? Anyone else have this problem with their D3000s?
