Hi out there!

I've found the following "magic sequence" on different sites on the net, and it's supposed to remap the sensor on our D700 in case there are any stuck/hot pixels ... Anyone that tried it?

- Remove the lens and attach the lens cap.
- Set the camera to manual focus.
- Go to manual exposure mode.
- Set ISO to 6400 and shutter speed to 1 second.
- Take a "photo" and check the result for stuck/hot/discolored pixels.
- In the menu, go to "clean the image sensor" (but don't perform the cleaning yet!), just so that this menu appears faster when entering the menu later.
- Set the shutter to 25 seconds.
- Take two photos like this and immediately afterwards go to the menu and perform the "clean image sensor" twice. The sensor is now supposed to be remapped ...

So, is this just wishful thinking or is there any truth behind it? Haven't got my D700 around to try it right now ...

Have a nice afternoon!

Kindly,
