I tested my new D80 for hot pixels (1/15 s, ISO400 with cap on, NR OFF) and found one blue dot.

It does not disappear at other settings, even at 1/60 ISO100 without cap. In this case it is white dot with a blue area around it.

I wonder what it is and shoud I bother to do anything about it if there is just one such pixel on the sensor?

Best regards,
